Linking Land and Water in the Colorado Basin

In this session we’ll explore the water management frameworks in several basin states and a community’s innovative efforts to address the Colorado River Basin water sustainability through the critical interplay of land and water. Discussion will include how land use planning has a direct impact on water use, and ultimately water availability. How can these two worlds be bridged to better meet the needs of people, agriculture, and nature?
