CRIDA Workshop Flyer
This two-day workshop at the University of Idaho will focus on a next-generation methodology for assessing and addressing climate risk in water resources management and planning. Climate Risk Informed Decision Analysis (CRIDA) is a means for implementing holistic climate-resilient water resources solutions. This workshop is designed to help participants from various disciplines to better understand the novel CRIDA approach while simultaneously exploring potential implications in terms of water governance, engineering, and ecosystems. Dr. John Matthews, a co-author of CRIDA and the Executive Director and co-founder of AGWA will lead the workshop.

Flow 2015 | Protecting Rivers and Lakes in the Face of Uncertainty | April 2015
