Goals and Outcomes
The Chesapeake Bay Watershed Agreement includes ten goals. Each goal is linked to a set of time-bound, measurable targets called outcomes. These goals and outcomes are interrelated: improvements in water quality can mean healthier fish and shellfish; the conservation of land can mean more habitat for wildlife; and a boost in environmental literacy can mean a rise in stewards of the Bay’s resources. Our environment is a system, and this agreement will support public health and the health of the watershed as a whole.
