This webinar series is focused on emerging water governance ideas and trends that are surfacing across the country. The objective is to create a continued dialogue to strategically address evolving concepts that will allow Canadians to sustainably manage water resources into the 21st Century. The series will empower scientists, policy-makers, decision-makers, academics, and the non profit community to:

 

      • Build a stronger understanding between the research, and on-the-ground implementation;
      • Share perspectives and expertise on the latest water issues, best practices, and policies across the countries; and
      • Join a network of expert practitioners and thinkers from across the country to create a community without jurisdictional division.


Audience: scientists, government officials, regulators, First Nations, lawyers, policymakers, NGOs, and academics

Registration: To register contact Elizabeth Hendriks at the POLIS Project on Ecological Governance hendriks.elizabeth@gmail.com
