Major policy issues have emerged in the Klamath River Basin during the past decade. The current or pending restoration, regulatory, statutory and legal issues in the basin include tribal fish and water rights, the Endangered Species Act listings in both Upper Klamath Lake and the mainstem Klamath River, agricultural water rights, and the allocation of water. The magnitude, complexity, and the geographic and political scope of issues and activities in the Klamath Basin call for an integrated approach to policy, funding, data acquisition and resource management. This symposium brought together representatives from the many federal, state and local government agencies, federally-recognized tribes, landowners and citizens, private industry interests, universities, community colleges and non-profit organizations concerned with resource management in the basin. Together we sought to share our current scientific knowledge, restoration experience, regulatory and socio-cultural perspectives, and to make recommendations to promote an integrated basin-wide approach to planning, research, restoration, management and funding efforts aimed at resolving resource issues in the Klamath Basin.
