Post-Conference Workshop: Part 2
Land / Water integration and Water Sustainability: Next Steps for Research and Evaluation
Thursday, July 22, 2021 | 12:00 PM - 2:30 PM ET
Participation is included with a paid Summer Conference registration.
Meet the Instructor: Ray Quay, Research Professional, Decision Center for a Desert City, Global Institute of Sustainability and Innovation, Arizona State University
The primary intent of urban water management is to maintain long term water sustainability for a community. Integration of land use management and water management activities is now being suggested as a best management practice for achieving water sustainability. However, there currently exists little literature that critically evaluates empirically the effectiveness of these practices in achieving water sustainability or suggests a framework for doing such evaluation. This session will focus on a round table facilitated discussion to identify what further research is needed to explore and evaluate land / water integration practice in terms of water sustainability.
Presenters: Ray Quay, Arizona State University, "Concepts for Evaluation of Land and Water Integration"; Zachary Sugg, Babbitt Center for Land and Water Policy, "Concepts of Measuring Water Sustainability"; Philip Stoker,
University of Arizona, "Review of Land and Water Evaluation Research"
