Members of the GLPRN have been recently involved in a project for the IJC in relation to the evaluation of the state of the Great Lakes today. The full report of this research will be available soon.
The Great Lakes Policy Research Network (GLPRN), originally funded under a Social Science and Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRC) Partnership Development Grant and by several universities in the basin, brings together a core team of Canadian and US policy researchers from across the Great Lakes basin to study policy and implementation challenges related to the Great Lakes Water Quality Agreement and other transboundary policies aimed at protecting the environment and building a sustainable basin for the future.
Environmental challenges remain significant in the Great Lakes. The transboundary challenge is to understand and design environmental and economic policies that will ensure a sustainable future for the Great Lakes. The GLPRN seeks to provide advice on how to meet this challenge. Drawing on leading-edge Canadian and US expertise, the Network brings together a committed group of scholars and stakeholders to advise on ‘next generation’ policy approaches for building a greener, stronger, more resilient basin.
