DCDC Water/Climate Briefing: The Dynamics of Energy and Water for Central Arizona Agriculture

May 8, 2013

We were very pleased to organize a great panel discussion about energy, water, and agriculture at the Decision Center for a Desert City (DCDC) on February 27, 2013 as part of the Water/Climate Briefing series.  The expert panel included:

  • Brian Betcher, General Manager, Maricopa Stanfield Irrigation & Drainage District
  • Ed Gerak, General Manager, Buckeye Water Conservation and Drainage District
  • Katosha Nakai, Manager, Tribal Relations & Policy Development; Business Planning & Governmental Programs; Central Arizona Project
  • Ron Rayner, Partner/Manager, A Tumbling T Ranches
  • Karen Smith, Fellow, Grand Canyon Institute

You can watch the video of the discussion here: http://vimeo.com/61281649

We owe a big thank you to the panelists for sharing their time and expertise, as well as to DCDC (especially Liz Marquez and Sarah Jones) for hosting and helping us organize the event, and all those who attended. We learned a lot, and hope you will, too!
