Climate change, water quality, indigenous collaboration priorities for IJC Watersheds Initiative

International Joint Commission / Kevin Bunch / 16 February 2021

Ensuring that all boards are aware of how climate change may impact their responsibilities and work in the decades to come is another priority for the IJC. A Climate Change Guidance Framework developed as part of the IWI program is being used to help all IJC boards determine what climate-related risks may impact their mandates in coming years and how they can be addressed. As of January 2021, the St. Croix River Watershed Board has completed its assessment. Other assessments are in process for the Souris River Board, Osoyoos Lake Board of Control, Lake Ontario-St. Lawrence River Board of Control and Lake Champlain-Richelieu River Study Board.
