Natasha Overduin is the Program Manager for the British Columbia Water Governance Program at the Centre for Indigenous Environmental Resources (CIER). Launched in 2017, the B.C. Water Governance Program is delivered in partnership by CIER and the POLIS Water Sustainability Project. The program supports Indigenous and non-Indigenous governments and organizations in their efforts to advance watershed co-governance.
Prior to working with CIER, Natasha spent four years working as a researcher and coordinator at POLIS. During that time, she gained a diverse breadth of experience working with non-profit organizations, communities, and all levels of government. Most of her work focused on supporting groups to self-organize, build capacity, and strengthen leadership for resolving local water issues.
