dc.description.abstract Coastal water quality (CWQ) has been identified as a priority issue in the development of a Sustainable Coastal Development Strategy for Nova Scotia. While a host of different monitoring programs currently contribute to monitoring of Nova Scotia’s coastal waters, there is concern over the effectiveness of these programs to collectively address the province’s needs and objectives for CWQ. To address these concerns, actions have been identified to improve and integrate CWQ monitoring. This research evaluates the effectiveness of seven programs conducting monitoring activities in Nova Scotia to meet the needs and objectives for CWQ monitoring in the province. It considers their potential for inclusion in an integrated strategy in the context of Nova Scotia. Key directions for improvement and integration include applying an ecosystem-based approach to monitoring activities, and greater involvement of community-groups to expand coverage. en_US
