ISEMA was developed by students in the Innovation, Science and Environment (ISE) stream of SPPA as a way to showcase the best work of students in the program. In recent years the ISE stream has been joined in the SPPA by the Sustainable Energy program and together these two cohorts continue to investigate, analyze and highlight the complex nature of policy problems in the fields of science, innovation and environment.
Each year professors nominate the best term papers from their classes, which examine the policy area of innovation, science and environment for publication in this journal. Authors, editors and volunteers then put in a tremendous amount of work to make each paper as strong and poignant as possible. Without the hard word, commitment and patience of those that have been involved and are passionate about these issues, this edition would not have been possible.
Thank you to everyone involved for their hard work in making this edition a reality, and we hope you enjoy reading Volume X.
