The panel will explore the latest technical and political issues surrounding Great Lakes water quality and availability, especially as they are being affected by climate change. The implications for the often under-appreciated resources of the Great Lakes are huge, as the sustainability of the world's largest group of freshwater lakes is vital to public and environmental health and regional economic development. The discussion will include how regional governments and industry are responding.
