Projects

The Columbia River Basin is an abundant watershed, supporting immense forests, the largest salmon runs in the world, and diverse and abundant wildlife. These natural resources benefit our region with sustainable food, jobs, recreation, clean water, and a healthier environment, among many others. Yet, these natural resources have been seriously degraded by dams and other developments in the basin. When assets, whether built or natural, are not managed sustainably, economic loss occurs.

UCUT worked with Earth Economics, Columbia River Inter-Tribal Fish Commission, Pacific Rivers, Save Our Wild Salmon, and WaterWatch of Oregon to develop The Value of Natural Capital in the Columbia River Basin report that shows the immense economic value of the Columbia River Basin’s natural assets. In addition, it provides clear evidence of the increased value that can be gained by addressing ecosystem-based function in the Columbia River Basin river management.

You can read or download the full report here, last updated December 2017.
