This webinar will showcase a panel of emerging student researchers working on priority topics related to water law, policy, and governance. It is the first webinar in our new “Water Research Roundup” series, being offered as part of POLIS’ Creating a Blue Dialogue webinar series.
Avery Deboer-Smith will discuss her research as both a Masters student and Operations Director at Living Lakes Canada. Her work focuses on the Columbia Basin Water Monitoring Collaborative, which will act as the coordinating body for developing a systemic guiding framework to address water monitoring data collection and data storage needs in the Canadian Columbia Basin.
Richard Farthing-Nichol will describe his recently completed Masters research, which focused on the challenge of securing sustainable funding for watershed co-governance between Indigenous and Crown governments.
Rebecca Macias Gimenez will describe her work on land and water governance, and environmental decision-making about large energy infrastructure, intersected with aspects of social and environmental justice.
