Public Policy Assessment and Advancing Science-Based Freshwater Protection: Background paper
In January 2017, IISD and the University of Ottawa convened a small group of experts to discuss fresh water in Canada, particularly as it relates to the federal regulatory regime.
Discussions included the need for a pan-Canadian freshwater strategy, improved regulatory implementation and enforcement and coherent risk-based approaches to water management. This paper written by M.P. Trudeau served as the background document for this event.
