Jennifer Pitt, Audubon [POWERPOINT PRESENTATION]

ABSTRACT

The Colorado River Delta has long been desiccated, due to over-allocation of water supplies and persistent drought. In a series of recent agreements, the United States and Mexico have begun a collaborative effort with non-governmental organizations to restore water to this ecosystem for the purpose of re-creating riparian and estuarine habitat, in the context of agreements that improve the two countries’ ability to manage a diminishing water supply.

BIO

Jennifer Pitt joined Audubon in December 2015 to advise the organization’s strategies to protect and restore rivers throughout the Colorado River Basin. At Audubon she continues her work on United States–Mexico collaboration to restore the long-desiccated Colorado River Delta. Previously she worked as the Colorado River Project Director at the Environmental Defense Fund.
