dc.description.abstractHorizon scanning is a systematic approach increasingly used to explore emerging trends, issues, opportunities, and threats in conservation. We present the results from one such exercise aimed at identifying emerging issues that could have important scientific, social, technological, and managerial implications for the conservation of inland waters in Canada, in the proximate future. We recognized six opportunities and nine challenges, for which we have provide research implications and policy options, such that scientists, policy makers, and the Canadian society as a whole could prepare for a potential growth in each of the topic areas we identified. The issues spanned a broad range of topics from recognizing the opportunities and challenges of community-enabled science and the need to consider the legal rights of nature, to the likely increase of pharmaceuticals in wastewater due to an aging population. These issues represent a first baseline that could help decision makers identify and prioritize efforts, while simultaneously stimulate new research avenues. We hope our horizon scan will pave the way for similar exercises related to the conservation of biodiversity in Canada.
