Humans and Water: Managing our Most Precious Resource

Presenter

Speaker: • Martin Doyle, Professor of River Systems Science and Policy, Nicholas School of the Environment and Director of Water Policy, Nicholas Institute for Environmental Policy

Seventy years ago, a presidential commission identified a set of grand water challenges facing the United States-a list that proved to be prescient. Looking back at this list and which of its recommendations were implemented, ignored, and simply ahead of their time can help set the context for the nation's water needs today. Join us as we discuss water issues that have emerged since the list's creation and explore the most pressing water policy issues for the coming decade.
