The Policy & Practice of Climate Change & Water

AGWA in NY Times

AGWA and its newly released Nature Climate Change paper are featured in the NY Times article "Heading Off Negative Impacts of Dam Projects." In this Special Report on Energy for Tomorrow, the article explains how the newly created eco-engineering decision scaling (EEDS) methodology can drastically influence the way that water managers build and operate dams going forward. Using the example of the Mekong River and its tributaries, Ms. Gies outlines the role of this novel methodology as a way of adapting to climate change in rivers worldwide. It features interviews with several AGWA members, including the paper's co-authors, Dr. LeRoy Poff and Dr. Casey Brown.
