Missouri River Basin Interagency Roundtable (MRBIR)


The Missouri River Basin Interagency Roundtable (MRBIR) is a forum for Federal Agencies advocating for a collaborative approach to addressing issues within the Missouri River watershed.

The goal of the MRBIR is to seek opportunities for collaboration, coordination, and communication among Federal Agencies and, when possible and where appropriate, to communicate to other basin interests with a single Federal voice on issues within the basin. This approach is essential to realizing mutually beneficial objectives or when the MRBIR can facilitate more comprehensive interagency efforts that would typically be beyond the scope of any single agency.

Vision of the MRBIR Partnership

The Missouri River basin is a fully functioning ecosystem that provides benefits
for the human community and habitat for native plant and animal species

Members of the MRBIR partnership agree that the Missouri River Basin ecosystem is worthy of special consideration and stewardship because of its critical importance to human and natural communities, and that it is in the Nation’s interest to promote this stewardship through diverse venues. The Federal Agencies are also committed to working with Tribes, States, and stakeholders to incorporate public values in achieving this vision.
