The IJC’s Great Lakes Science Advisory Board includes two committees, on Research Coordination and Science Priority.
As you can imagine, there’s a lot of research to coordinate and science to prioritize.
Under the Science Priority Committee, there are five work groups, one of which focuses on Information Coordination and Flow. The goal of the work group’s project is to identify and assess programs and platforms that collect, deliver, and use data and information in the Great Lakes to support management and policy decisions. This is intended to help improve the flow of data and information to decision makers.
The committee recently completed its report on “Information Coordination and Flow in the Great Lakes Basin.” Some highlights of the findings are contained in an infographic below. The full report is available here.
