When POWI turned ten, we asked some of the stakeholders who have been involved in our projects for an assessment of how we are doing. Here is a selection of what they said:
For the last decade, the Munk Program on Water Issues has consistently made a valuable contribution to the public debate about Canada’s freshwater resources, by leading and encouraging rigorous, objective and focused research and creating a public forum in which different points of view are debated and perspectives are enriched.
Scott Vaughan, Commissioner of Environment and Sustainable Development,
Office of the Auditor General of Canada
We have worked on several events with the Program on Water Issues and the University of Toronto, Munk School of Global Affairs; they been a valuable resource in providing a space for open discussion of important continental water issues in a professional academic setting.
Scott Walker, Public Affairs Officer, U.S. Consulate General Toronto
POWI can be relied upon to provide relevant, authoritative research on Canadian water issues, including Great Lakes issues. You consistently bring the best minds to the discussion table.
Gord Miller, Environmental Commissioner of Ontario
The Munk School’s Program on Water Issues is one of the leading forums for the investigation and analysis of the critical issues regarding water in Canada and North America. POWI’s high-level and provocative discussions of water have raised awareness of the important role water plays in politics, in our lives, and in international relations.
David Biette, Director, Canada Institute,
Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholar
