The Walton Family Foundation and the Sustainable Water Markets Fellowship Program at Bren presents A Water Markets Design Workshop on November 7-8th at Room 1414, Bren Hall.
With generous support from the Walton Family Foundation, the Bren School will host a two-day Water Markets Design Workshop. The first session, on Nov. 7, will focus on the conceptual design of water markets, drawing on lessons learned from other environmental markets. The second session (Nov. 8) will be divided into morning and afternoon sessions. In the morning session, we will hear from water markets practitioners about their water markets work, constraints, and strategies for moving forward. A panel of speakers from the morning session will discuss lessons learned. During the afternoon session, participants in the Sustainable Water Markets Fellowship program will partner with representative from The Nature Conservancy to lead a discussion intended to synthesize conceptual market design with practical experiences. The goal is to develop a framework for how to expand the pace and scale of market-based flow restoration efforts.
The workshop hosts are:
Gary Libecap, Bren professor and a Sustainable Water Markets program faculty member
Chris Costello, Professor of environmental and resource economics at Bren
Andrew Purkey, Director of National Fish and Wildlife’s Western Transactions Program
Eloise Kendy, Director of the Nature Conservancy’s Environmental Flows Program
