Speaker: Sharon B. Megdal, Ph.D., Director of the University of Arizona Water Resources Research Center and AWRA Board Member
Groundwater is of increasing importance to communities, businesses, agriculture, and natural systems. Consequently, governance and management of this water source are of high interest. Due to the decentralized nature of groundwater management in the U.S., there is no single source of information about groundwater management challenges and approaches to address them. This webinar will present findings from multiple studies of groundwater governance and management in the U.S., including two national surveys and analysis of three innovative regional approaches to collaborative groundwater governance in the Sunbelt. Professor Megdal will share results of these limited-budget efforts and hopes to stimulate future dialogues on this subject.
Q&A to follow. PDH credit available to attendees.
