What challenges are associated with analysis of groundwater governance and management, where authorities are decentralized and governance practices are evolving? Seminar discussion will examine these complexities at three levels, using findings from (1) two national surveys of state groundwater governance and management policies and challenges, (2) case study analysis of regional collaboration in three growing regions, and (3) transboundary groundwater assessments along the United States – Mexico border.
