The Columbia River Treaty Revisited
Transboundary River Governance in the Face of Uncertainty
The Columbia River Treaty, passed in 1964, split hydropower and flood control regulation of the river between Canada and the US. Either country must provide ten-years notice of termination, and certain provisions expire in 2024. Thus, efforts are underway to understand and predict changes in the basin that might warrant a change in the treaty. This collection of writings is an important contribution to the effort to explore the question of water governance in the face of uncertainty. The contributors to this important volume are experts involved in implementing the Treaty, in international water law, and representing interests in the basin.
