Water-Resilient Agriculture

Water-Resilient Agriculture

Diciembre 2022, inglés

Lincoln Institute of Land Policy

Irrigated agriculture uses almost three-quarters of the water supply in the Colorado River Basin, occupies more than four million acres of land, and is a critical source of food, feed, and fiber for local and global markets. Because of agriculture’s economic and cultural importance, the impact of reduced water supplies for farmers—in some regions, as much as 40 percent—will be far reaching.

That’s why the Babbitt Center is working with rural, urban, and tribal agricultural stakeholders focusing on improving water resiliency and regional sustainability.
