Come listen to me talk in Washington DC

Bridging Knowledge Gaps in Water Management
Part of the Global Resource Futures series:
Integrating approaches to water, food, energy & the environment

October 27, 8:30am - 2:00pm
B1 Conference Center
CSIS 1800 K. St. NW, Washington, DC

Please join CSIS and the U.S. Department of Agriculture, the U.S. Department of Energy, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, and Colorado State University in this participatory workshop on knowledge gaps in domestic and international water issues. The third in the three-part Global Resource Futures series, this event will a) identify research and education gaps that pertain to the intersection of water, food, energy, and the environment b) recommend solutions to these complex challenges.

The workshop will feature a keynote address by David Zetland, author of The End of Abundance: A Primer of Water Economics, two panel presentations, and an interactive breakout session moderated by representatives from CSIS and the federal Subcommittee for Water Availability and Quality (SWAQ).

During the event, a live video recording of the keynote and panel presentations will be made available on the CSIS website to reach a wider audience, and afterward CSIS will produce a summary document including recommendations from the working groups. Ultimately the suggested policy frameworks emerging from the workshop will be shared with various government agencies through SWAQ as they consider their future research and education needs.

Please RSVP to Katryn Bowe at kbowe@csis.org.
