Summary

The goal of this project was to bring together decision makers and scientists from around the world to discuss means of effectively managing the world’s water supply. The Rosenberg International Forum on Water Policy facilitates the development and exchange of scientific information gleaned from water management experiences among scholars and water managers from diverse circumstances. At 5-day Rosenberg International Forum on Water Policy, The Banff Centre hosted 50 international senior decision-makers and experts on water policy and management from over 25 countries to address the theme of “Management of Upland Watersheds.” Participants focused on issues like the impacts of climate change on water agreements and treaties, challenges related to water scarcity in areas of perceived abundance, and integrated watershed management.
