Dr. Lars Hallström examines the issues surrounding water in Alberta. Do you have questions about the future of water? You should.

Lunch-&-Learn-Poster-v2---Lars-Hallstrom-Jan15The Augustana Alumni Office and Alberta Centre for Sustainable Rural Communities present an Augustana Alumni Lunch & Learn:

Water for Life?

Water Security, Sovereignty and Policy in Alberta

Water has been identified as a critical resource for environmental, economic and human development in Alberta, yet there are significant socio-political and hydrological challenges presented by this core natural resource.

This lecture examines the core issues surrounding water for Alberta. We will discuss water quality and supply, management, authority and regulation. We will also consider regulatory and planning approaches such as the Land Use Framework, sector- and watershed-specific plans that are intended to improve and ensure access to adequate quality and quantities of water in Alberta.
