Stakeholders meet to review progress on action plan to contain nutrients in the Lake Winnipeg Basin

Scientists, policy-makers, researchers, business leaders, government representatives and other stakeholders met in Winnipeg Thursday to update progress on actions being taken to address the stressed condition of Lake Winnipeg and the related social and economic impacts.

The International Institute for Sustainable Development hosted the meeting to inform stakeholders about progress made in the development of a bioeconomy initiative as a critical component of an action plan to reduce the nutrient loading within the Lake Winnipeg Basin, while incorporating innovative approaches and economic benefits for Manitobans, such as the Netley-Libau Marsh project.
