The Babbitt Center for Land and Water Policy, a center of the Lincoln Institute of Land Policy, seeks to advance the integration of land and water management to meet the current and future water needs of Colorado River Basin communities, economies, and the environment. We develop tools and best practices to guide decisions through research, training, and partnerships for sustainable management of land and water resources in the Basin and beyond.

Work With Us

There are multiple ways to engage with us to advance sustainability through the integration of land and water management.

  • Foundations and Partners: We co-fund projects with other foundations, grant-making organizations, corporations, governmental agencies, and individuals to maximize our collective impact.

  • Communities: We offer many resources for local governments, from sharing case studies and lessons learned, to providing technical assistance, training, and learning opportunities.
  • NGOs and Universities: We work with NGOs and universities to develop curriculum and trainings, and conduct research and decision maker outreach that advances the integration of land use and water management.
  • PhD Students: We are proud to offer the Babbitt Dissertation Fellowship Program to PhD students whose research builds upon, and contributes to, our research interests.
