21 Dec The evolving world of water management
The evolving world of water management
In Alberta we generally know that when we turn on the tap we will have clean running water. But, do we know how it gets there?
Who decides who can access water, how, and how much they can take? A growing movement among governments is to rely on collaborative decision-making processes and market-based solutions to water management. The question remains: Are these processes effective and democratic? Find out what our panelists think about water management in Alberta and how we compare to other parts of the world.
