Weekly Wave, vol. 9, no. 7, Water Resources Research Center, Tucson, AZ, February 19, 2021
Celebrate World Water Day on Monday afternoon, March 22, when the WRRC hosts an informative panel discussion on the forthcoming UNESCO volume, “Managing Aquifer Recharge: A Showcase for Resilience and Sustainability.” This UNESCO publication provides valuable resources for stakeholders and water managers considering managed aquifer recharge (MAR) as a mechanism to bolster climate resilience in the context of environmental, social, and economic project goals. The webinar will be held from 3:30-5:00 pm MST and will highlight exemplary cases of MAR implementation worldwide. The panel includes lead editor Yan Zheng, Chair Professor at the University of Science and Technology in Shenzhen, China, along with authors of the five North American cases included in the book — the states of Arizona, California, Nebraska, and South Carolina in the US, and the state of Sonora, Mexico. In addition, book co-editor Peter Dillon of Australia will participate in the discussion.
