WEBINAR: DEVELOPING PATHWAYS TO SOLUTIONS TO WICKED WATER PROBLEMS
July 15, 2020
Many regions across the globe face what are called wicked water problems, which are complex challenges that are too big for readily identifiable and/or “standard” solutions. The reasons for this are many and can relate to underlying societal or political issues and differing viewpoints as to the causes and/or potential pathways to mitigating the challenges. It is often stated that the obstacles to addressing wicked water problems may be related to public acceptance rather than technological or economic factors. This webinar will focus on the similar but distinct wicked water issues faced in multiple geographic regions, including the Colorado River Basin and the Middle East. Implementing pathways to solving big water challenges requires interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary approaches; the involvement of stakeholders is extremely important. The webinar addresses key process factors that contribute to mitigating wicked water problems, along with the value of sharing lessons learned.
RESCHEDULED VIRTUAL SPRING CONFERENCE
August 4-13, 2020
We are excited to announce that AWRA will hold its 2020 Geospatial Water Technology Conference over two weeks between August 4 - 13. Due to extraordinary circumstances, we will be 'meeting' completely virtually. The conference planning committee is working to format the program into a virtual experience. So stay tuned for more details.
All speakers/presenters will be contacted as the next step. Please be patient as we are working very hard to set up the necessary tools we need before we contact speakers/presenters.
