In November 2018, a national roundtable discussion on the topic of “Elevating community-based water monitoring in Canada” was convened by Living Lakes Canada, WWF-Canada and The Gordon Foundation. All three organizations engage with Community-Based Water Monitoring (CBWM) in different ways and are committed to advancing collaborative and evidence-based water stewardship across Canada. The aim of the roundtable was to identify actionable steps the federal government can take to show leadership and support in advancing CBWM in Canada.
Out of that Roundtable came the following resources:
- FINAL RECOMMENDATIONS
- ROUNDTABLE DISCUSSION PAPER
- Community-Based Water Monitoring in Canada at a Glance – Featured Case Studies
The “Elevating CBWN in Canada” webinar was hosted in April 2019 by WWF-Canada, during which the history and the process behind the initiative was revisited, the final recommendations were presented, and next steps were discussed.
