Project Details


Kyl Center for Water Policy Leadership Roundtable (ASUF 30006806) Kyl Center for Water Policy Leadership Roundtable As Arizona confronts a potential water supply gap and increasing demand, highly informed leadership in water policy is critically important. Yet, there is solid consensus in the water resources community that the vast majority of Arizonas elected officials and aspiring leaders are woefully under-informed about our states complex water issues. At the same time, legislators and other decision makers report that they do not know where to go for accurate, non-partisan information about water policy. And our universities hydrologists, resource scientists and water policy experts express frustration at being an under-utilized resource. Concept. The Kyl Center for Water Policy proposes to foster water policy literacy and leadership by inviting selected current and emerging leaders to participate in a Water Leadership Roundtable. The Roundtable will consist of an ongoing series of forums and related publications on Arizonas water challenges. Roundtable forums will feature water experts from every major sector and Arizonas three public universities. The forums and related white papers will provide participants with information about Arizonas current water challenges and assist them in evaluating proposed policy solutions. Goals. The three interrelated goals of the Kyl Center Leadership Roundtable are: to foster water expertise among Arizona leaders to help ensure sound water planning decisions; to ensure that decision-makers recognize and use the Kyl Center as a trusted resource and clearinghouse for information about water policy; to assist water experts in Arizona and beyond in forging productive connections with key policy-makers.
