Tackling Wicked Water Problems in the Transboundary Colorado River Basin
Colorado River Basin Presentation Available
A 20-minute presentation, Tackling Wicked Water Problems in the Transboundary Colorado River Basin, is available for viewing on the WRRC website. This recorded keynote presentation was to be shown at a conference in Morocco on October 20, 2021. Announcement of postponement of the in-person conference arrived a few days after the recording was submitted. Due to the high interest in the low-flow conditions of the Colorado River locally, nationally, and internationally, WRRC Director Sharon Megdal is making the recorded presentation and slides freely available. A written supplement to the presentation is Dr. Megdal’s August 2021 Reflections, “Adapting to a Drier Future.” Feel free to distribute to your networks or assign to students!
