The Great Lakes Commission Strategic Plan is a statement of vision, mission, goals, objectives and strategic actions to guide the work of the Great Lakes Commission. The strategic plan was approved by the Commission May 15, 2007. The Great Lakes Commission Workplan is the follow-up document to the Commission’s strategic plan.
The strategic plan addresses how the Commission accomplishes its work through four core programs: Communication and Education, Information Integration and Reporting, Facilitation and Consensus Building, and Policy Coordination and Advocacy. The workplan addresses the kinds of work the Commission pursues, focusing on six broad program areas: 1) Clean Energy and Climate; 2) Water-dependent Economy and Infrastructure; 3) Invasive Species; 4) Water Resources Management; 5) Water Quality and Ecosystem Health; and 6) Habitat and Coastal Management.
