The University of Arizona Water Resources Research Center invites proposals for conference presentations and posters for its 2023 Annual Conference, What Can We Do? Solutions to Arizona’s Water Challenges. Proposals should offer solutions to the pressing water resource challenges currently facing Arizona and the region. Drought in the Colorado River Basin may be foremost on many people’s minds, but beyond this critical challenge, the pressures of growth and climate change continue to be troubling. For some, securing the next bucket of water is vital, while others focus on conservation. At the local scale, water contamination and groundwater overdraft are key issues, while some communities lack basic access to safe and adequate water service. The natural environment in many areas is threatened by drought and competing water uses, farmers are tasked with increasing water efficiency, and cities need effective strategies to ensure continued water security and reliability.
The WRRC 2023 Annual Conference will be held July 11 – 12, 2023, at the University of Arizona Student Union Grand Ballroom in Tucson, AZ. Proposals are invited for 10- to 15-minute Oral Presentations, 5- to 7-minute Highlight Talks, and Posters. Prizes will be awarded for the best student posters.
