Conference: International Workshop on Governing Wetlands and WatershedsExport this event to calendar

Wednesday, March 21, 2012 — 8:45 AM to Friday, March 23, 2012 — 3:45 PM EDT

Logos reading Watersheds in general and wetlands in particular are under increasing pressure around the world. Although their scale, scope and intensity vary widely, it is clear that most if not all of these problems and pressures are the result of human activities.

This conference brings together a combination of international and UW-based scholars to present their research findings and to discuss comparative practices as a way to begin a longer-term dialogue on governance and management best practices. In short, what are the key issues, what are the problems, what is being done to address them, what works, what doesn’t work and why?

Keynote addresses are open to the university community and public.
