Water Markets and Private Investments in Western Agriculture: A Road Forward?
Thursday, September 24th, 2020
Using market forces to shift the distribution and use of western water resources is a controversial topic.

To others, these investments allow agriculture to become more efficient and resilient, and when done correctly, can minimize any pain associated with large-scale water reallocations.
