Report Released – “Breaking Down Barriers: Priority Actions for Advancing Water Quality Trading”
In the recently released report “Breaking Down Barriers: Priority Actions for Advancing Water Quality Trading.” The report is a product of the National Network on Water Quality Trading (“National Network”), a network of diverse organizations working to advance water quality trading in the United States. This report investigates what’s keeping water quality trading on the sidelines and proposes a detailed action agenda to help get water quality trading on the ground in more watersheds across the United States.
Along with this report, The Willamette Partnership and the Association of Clean Water Administrators(ACWA) have released five water quality trading policy templates. The templates make it faster and easier to develop transparent and accountable water quality trading programs that drive meaningful investment toward achieving clean water goals. The templates go along with the National Network on Water Quality Trading publication, Building a Water Quality Trading Program: Options and Considerations, to provide a blueprint for those states and organizations seeking to create a water quality trading program.
