Policy Process and Problem Framing for the State Nutrient Reduction Strategies in the US Upper Mississippi River Basin
May 25, 2023, 12:00 – 1:00 PM CT
Presenters: Chloe Wardropper, University of Illinois; Ken Genskow, University of Wisconsin-Madison; Derek Franklin, Iowa State University; Emily Usher, Purdue University

Join us to hear from authors of a recent Journal of Soil and Water Conservation paper, who will share highlights from their multistate social science study on the development and implementation of state Nutrient Reduction Strategies (NRS). The research was guided by the following objectives: (1) describe and compare stakeholder perceptions of each state’s NRS policy stages; (2) identify common challenges, accomplishments, and innovations resulting from the NRSs; and (3) explore the role of the 2011 US Environmental Protection Agency memo as a catalyst for nutrient reduction action. 

Registration will be released in late April.
