The Ethics & Treaty Project is sponsored jointly by the Center for Environmental Law & Policy and Sierra Club, working with the Columbia River Treaty Round Table and Columbia Basin tribes and First Nations with natural resource rights and management authorities and responsibilities affected by the Columbia River Treaty.
The project’s goal is to promote principles of stewardship and justice in modernizing the Columbia River Treaty, which governs water and dam management on the Columbia River. The United States and Canada can update and modernize the Treaty as early as 2024, and represents a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to change how the Columbia River is managed. Our specific goals are to restore ecological balance to the river, return salmon and other native fish species to the Upper Columbia, and remedy historic injustices to the Columbia Basin tribes & First Nations caused by the dam-building era in the Columbia Basin.
