Institutional resilience for water supply and demand

Planning for sustainable water management involves working with a wide network of complex social and natural adaptive systems.

This network intersects around both supply and demand and a key aspect of sustainability is institutional resilience to keep supply and demand balanced over the long-term.

Understanding the dynamics of demand is essential for adapting to changes that occur in this systems network.

This briefing will review current water management practices and ASU research that focus on the dynamics and driving forces of water demand within communities utilizing water from the Colorado River Basin.

Relationships between water demand, urban growth trends, and water management policies of different communities will be explored.
