Future flows: Water law and policy in Alberta for a sustainable future

February 20, 2019 - 12:00pm

Join Jason Unger, Executive Director of the Environmental Law Centre, to explore how water law and policy may better serve instream flow needs today and into the future. 

Making informed and science based decisions regarding environmental flows is made challenging by the complexity of hydrological systems and their interrelationship with aquatic and riparian ecosystems. This challenge is magnified by climate change. Responding to data and climate uncertainty requires ongoing monitoring and research. Uncertainty also requires management and governance systems that are responsive.

How is Alberta prepared for the future in relation to instream flow needs? This webinar will investigate past, current and future approaches to water management in the province.
