Information and education are key to adaptive management
- Information and education contribute to both anticipating and preventing lake level-induced damage, particularly when focused on understanding risk, the limits of regulation, inherent uncertainties and system vulnerability. Information collected and generated by the Study, as well as ongoing hydroclimatic monitoring and modelling afterward will support coastal zone management efforts. This information is also highly relevant to other Great Lakes initiatives such as the Great Lakes Water Quality Agreement and the Great Lakes - St. Lawrence River Basin Sustainable Water Resource Agreement. As well, the ongoing hydroclimatic monitoring, modelling and data management systems of different agencies can be utilized to inform the learning culture that is needed to support coastal zone management and other Great Lakes resource management programs.
