Dr. Laurie Trautman

In the past decade, the region has faced a growing number of climate-induced natural hazards, from fires to floods, which elevate the importance of working collaboratively with our neighbors to the north on shared challenges. This presentation will provide an overview of the cross-border area known by several names: the Pacific Northwest, the Salish Sea, Cascadia. Is it a region? What are the implications of being bifurcated by an international border? How do we approach governance in a cross-border context?
