Raise the River: Report of Accomplishments (May 2016)


Raise the River is a unique partnership of U.S. and Mexican non-governmental organizations committed to reviving the Colorado River Delta. Sonoran Institute is one of the founding members of the partnership. This progress report focuses on the activities necessary to support environmental restoration for benefit of the people and wildlife of the Delta. Thanks to the generous support of our donors, this partnership was able to take advantage of a historic agreement between the United States and Mexico to acquire water and begin to restore the Delta at a significant scale. These efforts, which are described in detail in this report, have helped set the stage for negotiation of a more comprehensive long-term agreement between both countries.
