Governing Like A River Basin: Options for Expanded Stakeholder Engagement in the Colorado River Basin

With cities, farms, and industry across seven states competing over river flows that are dwindling due to climate change, the Colorado River Basin faces some serious long-term problems. This Policy Brief by Carpe Diem West & The University of Montana examines four examples of stakeholder engagement processes that have successfully been used in large U.S. river basins facing long-term resource management challenges and discusses how these models might be used in conjunction with the Bureau of Reclamation’s Basin Study to build consensus for a set of long-term solutions to the water management challenges facing the Colorado River.
