The Program in Water Conflict Management and Transformation (PWCMT)

The program is aimed at supporting water conflict prevention and resolution in Oregon, across the United States and internationally through a four-fold approach:

(1) The Certificate in Water Conflict Management and Transformation;

(2) The Transboundary Freshwater Dispute Database;

(3) The Universities Partnership for Transboundary Waters; and

(4) Collaborative Facilitations and Skills-Building Workshops.

This Program is being designed to fill the niche as a broader, more integrative approach that explicitly integrates human, policy, and scientific dimensions of water resources within the framework of governance and sustainability, and focuses training and research on all facets of water conflict transformation. The PWCMT serves as a training, resource and information hub for students, citizens, officials, and business leaders in Oregon, across the United States and internationally, facilitating dialogue on critical water issues across diverse values and perspectives.
