Arizona: Land of the Water Haves and Water Have-nots
“Water certainty,” that is, a resilient, long-term water supply, is crucial to our prosperity and quality of life. Yet, some communities in the state lack water certainty. These communities may be extra vulnerable to shortages. They may lack access to water for basic needs. And they have little control over the stewardship of their water resources. Sarah Porter from the Kyl Center for Water Policy at Arizona State University’s Morrison Institute for Public Policy will discuss the underpinnings of water uncertainty and policy reforms to address the problem.
Sarah Porter is the inaugural director of the Kyl Center for Water Policy at Arizona State University’s Morrison Institute for Public Policy. Established in 2014, the Kyl Center promotes research, analysis, collaboration and open dialogue to build consensus in support of sound water stewardship solutions for Arizona and the West. Sarah also serves as deputy director of Future H2O, an initiative to focus ASU’s water expertise on solving current world water challenges, local and global.
Sarah came to the Kyl Center from the National Audubon Society, where she served as the Arizona state director and led Audubon’s Western Rivers Project, a multistate initiative to protect and restore important river habitats in the Intermountain West. As deputy director of Audubon Arizona, Sarah was a key team member in the effort to launch the Nina Mason Pulliam Rio Salado Audubon Center, a nature education center located in a restored riparian habitat in South Phoenix.
