Environmental Protection Agency.

The U.S. and Canada signed an accord to protect the Great Lakes, the world's largest freshwater system. The agreement, last updated in 1987, addresses critical health issues in the Great Lakes region and is a model of binational cooperation to protect water quality. The two governments began negotiations in 2009 to strengthen the agreement. New provisions address the nearshore environment, aquatic invasive species, habitat degradation, and the effects of climate change.
