The research described in this monograph focused on four principal questions:
  1. 1.

    What are the potential transboundary effects of the proposed Fundy tidal power project and how adequate is the scientific information underlying these predictions?

  2. 2.

    What is the nature and adequacy of the legal and institutional frameworks for environmental decisionmaking in Canada and in the United States?

  3. 3.

    How well is scientific information incorporated into the environmental assessment practices of Canada and the U.S., particularly in regard to indirect and transboundary effects?

  4. 4.

    What institutional changes may be appropriate to improve transboundary environmental decisionmaking?
