Adaptive Management Synthesis and Summary

Wendy Leger;Jennifer Read
Summary of work conducted by the Adaptive Management Group, including the overall Adaptive Management strategy and the processes, activities and key findings that lead to its development. This includes a synthesis and summary of information related to risk and vulnerability of Great Lakes interest groups to water level impacts, an institutional overview of methods available to reduce these risks, what would be required to implement such methods, their effectiveness, and the science monitoring and modelling requirements that are needed to better understand and track changes to the system, all of which are important components of an adaptive management strategy to address future extremes. The governance requirements and recommendations for the adaptive management strategy are also presented.
