This panel will begin with an examination of the interface of science and decision making, with a particular focus on governance contexts and decision processes, drawing on examples from the Great Lakes and the Everglades.

Dialogue Among Panel 1 and Panel 2

The science panel is joined by participants from the governance panel for a 45-minute facilitated dialogue on opportunities and challenges, within contexts of coastal and wetland restoration, enhancement and protection, of coordinating decisions across agencies, linking issues, and generating information relevant to decision making.
