Meeting the Financial Challenges of Improved Water Management in the West

Remote Webinar Series Coming August 2020

Improving the performance of water systems in western basins such as the Colorado River can entail a variety of expensive changes to infrastructure, policy and management. Throughout much of the 20th century water development era, federal appropriations were sufficient to cover major investments, but today, other sources of governmental and non-governmental funds and funding mechanisms are essential to improving water management and system performance. Determining the “how” and “who” of water financing raises several thorny questions about what approaches are most efficient, practicable, and equitable. In this event (produced online in multiple installments), we will explore issues such as the rise of creative funding mechanisms, the role of private investments and water markets, leveraging the resources of the business community, and the linkages between healthy landscapes, climate adaptation, and improved water management resiliency.
