New initiatives and emerging collaborations

The relationship between land use and water use has not been a past focus of academic or professional research or policy development.

However, as academic and professional attention has been shifting to outdoor water demand, the relationship between land use and water use has gained more attention.

Recent initiatives in Arizona and Colorado, including those of the Water Research Foundation, the Babbitt Center for Land and Water Policy, and the Decision Center for a Desert City, are focusing on various aspects of this relationship. These initiatives range from the influence of planning processes, to the impacts of urban form choices, to assessments of the current state of research and practice.

This briefing will explore these new initiatives and emerging collaborations for research and practice.
