Abstract

The Humber River Basin (HBR) project responds to critical issues facing decision makers concerning climate change and the sustainability of the HRB and its environments. The basin and its component watersheds represent an excellent platform from which to develop and integrate science and policy. The research presented herein is considered an important prerequisite to developing a more scientifically sound and ecosystem-based strategy for management of the basin ecosystem(s). Scientists and policy makers in Newfoundland and Labrador recognize that our most vital natural resources are directly or indirectly linked to water in the form of marine, fresh and estuarine systems.
