IoE Rough Cut Seminar Series - "Bioregional Approaches to Governing Water and Agriculture"
- Wednesday, October 7, 2020 from 12:00pm to 1:00pm
As part of the Montana Institute on Ecosystems' Rough Cut Seminar Series, Dr. Brian Chaffin will give a talk titled "Regime Shifts, Policy, and Scale: Bioregional Approaches to Governing Water and Agriculture in Nebraska" at noon on Wednesday, October 7. Please note that this seminar will be virtual, with call-in information below.
Dr. Brian Chaffin is an Assistant Professor of Water Policy & Governance in the W.A. Franke College of Forestry and Conservation at the University of Montana. His teaching and research focus on complex questions of water policy and governance, including the emerging realities of administering systems of prior appropriation water rights in a changing climate. A human geographer by training, Dr. Chaffin leverages theories of resilience and complex systems with an application of mixed social science research methods to better understand how informal aspects of water governance (e.g., social norms and collaborative networks) influence social-hydrologic outcomes on the landscape. He has on-going research collaborations across the U.S. West funded by NSF and NASA.
