2006 Rosenberg International Forum on Water Policy

Canada can become a leader in water management policy even while regional water shortages become more pressing


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.

The 5th Rosenberg International Forum on Water Policy was held in Banff from September 6-11, 2006. Participants included 52 scholars and water managers from 24 countries. The event featured presentations on themes such as “Water Management in Alpine Areas,” “Climate Change and Water Resources,” and “The Management of International Waters.” The conference resulted in recognition that Canadian policymakers should learn from successful international examples of good water policy, and act quickly to become a leader in creating an equitable water allocation strategy for Canadians.
