Water Governance Institutions in the South Saskatchewan River Basin
In order to deal with the complexity of water governance in Canada, where different forms of government and organization from the civil society are involved, the document is structured around different levels of governance, as it follows: (a) Government and civil society organizations at the federal level; (b) Inter Provincial; (c) Provincial and local government and civil society organizations in Alberta; and (d) Provincial and local government and civil society organizations in Saskatchewan. The information presented in the document is organized in four columns: (1) The first one corresponds to the name of the organization and the main purposes of the organization; (2) The second column refers to the role of the organization in water governance; (3) The third column describes the main links of the organizations with other organizations or with the community; and (4) The forth column describes the main instruments (acts, laws or mandates) of the organization. The document can be further developed adding additional organizations involved in water management. The information provided by this document has been obtained mostly from public and private websites and from documents produced by the IACC project and other researchers. These sources are identified at the end of the document. At the end of the document there is a list of the Acts that appear in the document with a short definition of each one of them.
