FARE researchers address water issues in First Nations communities.

A paper by Bethany Lipka (a graduate of FARE's MSc program and lecturer in the department) and Professor Brady Deaton in the journal Water Resources and Economics was the focus of a recent CBC news piece. Their research provided empirical evidence that First Nations that partner with nearby municipalities to supply their drinking water are less likely to have boil water advisories. Bethany was recently interviewed about their research on CBC's Up North program; a link to that interview can be found here: http://www.cbc.ca/player/play/2679552443, and their research paper can be found here.
