The Columbia River Treaty Revisited

Transboundary River Governance in the Face of Uncertainty

Edited by Barbara Cosens
Oregon State University Press

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.

Barbara Cosens is a professor at the University of Idaho College of Law and a member of the faculty of the Waters of the West Program. She represents the University of Idaho on the Universities Consortium on Columbia River Governance.
