On behalf of the Canadian government, NWRI leads and publishes scientific assessments of priority freshwater issues in Canada. Typically, these assessment reports are written by experts from NWRI, government, universities, and industry, and they encapsulate current scientific knowledge, trends, and information and program needs. As authoritative documents, they are intended to assist water science decision-makers, resource managers, and the research community in setting research priorities and in developing sound management policies and practices.
