Environmental Governance in the Mississippi River Basin

Managing natural resources in the Mississippi River Basin has evolved into a complex web of governmental and non-governmental organizations that lack mechanisms to effectively address transboundary and multi-jurisdictional issues. This book brings together in an accessible manner an in-depth analysis of the governance in the Mississippi River Basin and offers a series of recommendations for interagency responses and collaborative governance needed to address complex, multi-jurisdictional issues and achieve desired environmental outcomes in the MRB and other regional-scale ecosystems in the U.S. and abroad.
