Detailed information and data collected through scientific research and study of the coastal zone often ends up in the boardrooms and meeting rooms of higher level government agencies where policies related to the use and management of the coastal zone are formulated. Development of effective policies requires that policy makers have a clear and accurate understanding of the data being presented, and that the policies are flexible enough to be reviewed and revised as new data becomes available. Staff and Associates of Christian J. Stewart Consulting have participated in a number of high visibility studies that have allowed us to liaise with various levels of government, non-governmental organizations, public interest groups, scientists and academics, and develop effective policies related to the coastal zone. Our expertise on a wide variety of coastal resource and impact projects allows us to bring to the table a number of practical insights necessary for effective program evaluations and policy analyses.

Project examples include:

Development of Recommendations to the Governments of the United States and Canada on Measures to Alleviate the Adverse Consequences of Fluctuating Water Levels in the Great Lakes -St. Lawrence River Basin;
