Charting New Waters
Charting New Waters: A Call to Action to Address U.S. Freshwater Challenges is a groundbreaking report released by The Johnson Foundation at Wingspread and its partners on September 15, 2010, and presented to the Obama Administration at a meeting of federal agencies convened by the White House Council on Environmental Quality. This report is the culmination of an intensive two-year, diverse collaboration of leaders from business, nongovernmental organizations, agriculture, academia, government, foundations, and communities, and is believed to be the first such comprehensive, cross-sector examination of U.S. freshwater challenges and solutions. It explores the nature and breadth of these challenges, articulates potential solutions, and offers recommendations to ensure our freshwater resources are secure for the 21st century. In her presentation, Ms. Seidelman will outline this report’s findings, what lies ahead, and how this pertains to our region.
