Featuring New Handbook for Water Champions
What steps do local water champions need to take to gain influence and control in watershed decision-making? Natasha Overduin (bio) from the Centre for Indigenous Environmental Resources (CIER) and Rosie Simms (bio) from the POLIS Water Sustainability Project will be introducing the new Handbook for Water Champions: Strengthening Decision-Making and Collaboration for Healthy Watersheds. The Handbook will help watershed groups deepen their understanding of the “how-tos” of governance with practical advice and diagnostic tools. It unpacks the deeply complex and often messy social process of making choices, taking risks, and making compromises to achieve the long-lasting solutions and positive ecological outcomes that communities want and need.
