On Sept. 6, 2011, at the last of the Sound Vision events sponsored by Save the Sound, the Long Island Sound Study announced its Action Agenda: 2011-2013.
Periodically, LISS has developed agreements to guide and prioritize implementation of the Comprehensive Conservation and Management Plan – such agreements were developed in 1996, 2003, and 2006. The new agreement identifies priority actions to implement the 1994 CCMP from 2011 to 2013 and sets the stage for a more comprehensive update to the CCMP that is planned for 2014. The actions are structured to be specific and measurable, and will be tracked by the LISS. This Action Agenda is intended to drive results from LISS and its management conference partners. It is organized around four themes: Waters and Watersheds, Habitats and Wildlife, Communities and People, and Science and Management.
