Sixty years after the Columbia River Treaty

In Canada, the low water level of the Columbia is worrying: the river provides 40% of US electricity and half of the production of British Columbia. Today, with the renegotiation of the Columbia River, how do we balance environmental preservation, hydroelectric needs and the rarefaction of water?
A report by Benoît Livernoche for "La semaine verte", the Radio-Canada magazine.

Guests: Benoît Livernoche, journalist at Radio-Canada; Imane Messaoudi-Mattei, researcher at the Institute of Environmental Sciences of Geneva University and the Geneva Water Hub.

Presenter: Dominique Laresche.
