Sharing the Risks: Shortage, Surplus and Beyond
2005 Sympoisum Proceedings
The written proceedings of the Foundation’s 2005 Colorado River Symposium, “Sharing the Risks: Shortage, Surplus and Beyond,” is now available. Held last September, the fifth biennial invitation-only symposium brought together the top policymakers in the Colorado River Basin. Discussions centered on past and present drought/hydrologic conditions; how – or if – potential shortages should be shared; water rights and U.S.-Mexican border issues; and what the future may hold as the region sees an increasing transition from farms to cities – all issues that become even more complicated when you factor in climate change; the wild card of the future. This 160-page, softbound book is a vital resource for universities, libraries and law schools, and a must-have for the serious Colorado River scholar.
