NARF hosts group of interdisciplinary research fellows from the Harvard Law School Environmental Law Program and Harvard Water Security Initiative

On January 5, 2012, NARF hosted a group of interdisciplinary research fellows from the Harvard Law School Environmental Law Program and Harvard Water Security Initiative. The researchers are writing a background paper on water allocation and management in the Colorado River Basin and are consulting NARF because of NARF's expertise on tribal water rights and the pros and cons of litigation versus settlement of those rights.

Harvard intends to distribute this paper at an international water policy conference it is hosting this Spring of 2012. Other river basins being studied for the comparative conference include the Indus Basin of Pakistan/India; the Mississippi River Basin; the Murray-Darling Basin of Australia; and the Sao Francisco Basin of Brazil.
