The Energy and Environment Program and Duke University’s Nicholas Institute for Environmental Policy Solutions are collaborating to address domestic water challenges in the 21st century with an invite-only forum with utility, finance, and emerging technology executives, policy makers and thought leaders to advance thinking that leads to impact in the sector. In the face of diminishing fresh water resources, diminishing budgets and adverse effects from climate change, the challenge of US water management continues to grow. This ongoing transformation requires an intentional, cross-sector dialogue of the financial, infrastructure and conservation policies needed to protect and properly manage the nation’s water resources. The forum will consider the water infrastructure and investment; ecosystem and watershed functions; resiliency in the face of climate change; and emerging technologies and finance.
