Collaborative Governance Lessons from Estuary Programs (June 2021)

Water management- particularly in estuaries - is transboundary by nature. Effective management of such systems depends on effective collaborative governance. Focusing in, this webinar explores how different estuary programs across the U.S. have developed and applied collaborative governance models: what works, lessons learned, and opportunities for the future. After a set of speed presentations from programs that represent a range of governance models and stages of formation (from well-established to just starting out), there will be time for a broader discussion of best practice and potential next steps. Guests: Ann Swanson (Chesapeake Bay Commission), Laura Blackmore (Puget Sound Partnership), Duane De Freese (Indian River Lagoon), Mike Gerel (Narragansett Bay Estuary Program), Donald Killorn (Pensacola and Perdido Bays Estuary Program)
