Resilience and Preparedness

CGLI convened industry representatives to help shape the regional maritime strategy currently being developed by the Conference of Great Lakes and St. Lawrence Governors and Premiers (CGLSLGP) (http://www.cglslgp.org/projects/maritime/). CGLSLGP developed the maritime strategy to improve the efficiency and competitiveness of the maritime transportation system in the Great Lakes region, to grow the regional economy, and to create jobs.

Stakeholder meetings to provide comments and input into the draft strategy occurred through April 2016. Government agencies from the US and Canada, environmental NGOs, ship owners, and others signed up to contribute to this effort. CGLI is a member of the CGLSLGP’s Maritime Initiative Task Force Advisory Committee and convened the Maritime Transportation Strategy Work Group to ensure that the final strategy meets the interests of the regional industry that uses the Great Lakes transportation system to ship raw materials and/or finished products to market.
