New Trajectories for Binational Restoration Partnerships: Science-based and Diplomacy Mechanisms for the Restoration of the Colorado River Delta
November 17, 2021 @ 9:00 am - 10:00 am CST
After a century of water development under a legal framework that did not recognize nature as a legitimate water user, the Colorado River today rarely flows to the sea, and its 600,000 ha delta ecosystem has been reduced to a mere 10% of its original size. Environmental NGOs from the United States and Mexico have worked together for nearly two decades to restore riparian and wetland habitats and re-establish a modest connection between the flowing Colorado River and the Upper Gulf of California, for the benefit of nature and people. During this webinar, there will be a will replay of a keynote presentation from the Society of Ecological Restoration conference 2021 and then host a live Q&A with presenters Jennifer Pitt and Osvel Hinojosa-Huerta.
