G7 research group releases final Ise-Shima report

The G7 research group at the University of Toronto has released its final compliance report on the 2016 Ise-Shima Summit, which took place in Japan May 26-27, 2016.

The report looks at 19 priority commitments of the 342 commitments that G7 members made at the summit.

As with all of these reports, there is both good news and bad. There was 100 per cent compliance on the Paris Agreement on climate change and on maritime security.

Despite having a feminist prime minister, Canada fared poorly on the issue of strengthening women’s engagement in emergency response situations. In fact, that issue received the lowest compliance score when all G7 members are added in.

Canada finished fourth overall, with an average compliance of 79 per cent.
