The Centre for Environmental Assessment Research (CEAR) at UBC facilitates the connection of conceptual, technical and applied knowledge to decision-making processes by providing a unique setting for collaboration.

The interdisciplinary approach taken by researchers linked through CEAR helps build synergies across a range of EA practice communities.

The Centre provides opportunities for participation in workshops, seminars, and guest lectures covering a range of themes in EA practice. These events support both research and training. Activities at CEAR are open to involvement by individuals from outside UBC interested in EA practice and natural resource management.
