Edited by Cosens (U. of Idaho College of Law), this collection arises out the work of a network of researchers from Canada and the United States focused on the Columbia River Basin of the Pacific Northwest as it pertains to the design and implementation of governance of international watercourses in the face of uncertainty. Nineteen papers are presented in four sections. The first examines the 1965 Columbia River Treaty, its implementation, and social changes involving increased local participation and changing values. The second discusses two key ecological change issues: the health of anadromous fish (e.g. salmon) and climate changes. The future of the treaty is then considered in relation to energy issues. Finally, chapters expand beyond focus on the Columbia Basin to consider broader academic questions of international waterway governance.
