What is a subnetwork?
A subnetwork is made up of at least 4 organizations or individuals that are working together to address a particular issue or the issues in a specific geographical area within the Great Lakes basin. Subnetworks support the goals of the Great Lakes Network by:

  • Improving collective access to and utilization of information and knowledge on Great Lakes policy;
  • Better coordinating responsiveness to current and emerging issues; and
  • Enhancing integration, collaboration and coordination across issues and geographies (including the Canada -U.S. border).
