Need

People, place and living systems in the Lower Great Lakes Region: Lakes Erie, Lake Ontario and their connected Saint Clair, Niagara and Upper Saint Lawrence Rivers face new sustainability and resilience challenges due to changes in physical, climate and socioeconomic conditions, climate, land use, population and other changes create sustainability and resilience challenges for the diverse groups of stakeholders residing in the region. This created the need for a regional research network to develop the knowledge to successfully tackle these challenges. Since 2019, the OUTSTEPS network has addressed this need.
