Abstract

The international workshop for change: climate and hydrology academic network for governance and the environment, held on March 5-6, 2009, Mexico, was aimed to create robust, cooperative water management, policies, and governance. The workshop addresses climate variability and change to ensure secure water for continued economic development and environmental health in Mexico, the US, and Canada's border regions. Invited talks addressed in the workshop's included North American water availability, climate change, and implications of land use and population growth for drought vulnerability and bilateral treaties. Speakers highlighted the need for more frequent and meaningful communication between scientists and stakeholders, and the need to increase opportunities to exchange disciplinary insights and data. Workshop participants noted the critical need to support communication to improve relevance to policy and resource management decisions.
