The results are in! National CBM Survey Highlights

Written by Aislin Livingstone

March 15, 2018

Our key findings from open-ended responses suggest that outcomes from a national discussion should focus on:

  • Building CBWM capacity
  • Ensuring high quality monitoring
  • Facilitating regional collaboration
  • Streamlining data management
  • Strengthening knowledge transfer

Next Steps

We are taking the advice provided through our survey and running with it! Stay tuned for more information on our plans for an upcoming national-scale gathering on CBWM. This event is intended to highlight the successes of CBWM to-date and identify key opportunities for the federal government to help sustain this growing movement.

This is a collaborative initiative being led by The Gordon Foundation, Living Lakes Canada, and WWF-Canada.

DataStream’s first Northern Data-thon!

In May the Government of the Northwest Territories (GNWT) hosted over 40 water stewards from across the territory for a community-based water monitoring workshop. The workshop included training in monitoring protocols, results-sharing and discussion. It also provided an opportunity for some hands-on time with DataStream for water monitors to dive into all the data they’ve been collecting.
