The Getches-Wilkinson Center, in conjunction with many collaborators, has a strong interest in promoting implementation of the Colorado Water Plan (CWP).  This entails work on several subjects, including agricultural water conservation and transfers, integrated land and water planning (including watershed planning), and improved Colorado River management.  Some of our relevant papers include:

This work builds upon on earlier review of the draft CWP.  That report, led by Lawrence (Larry) MacDonnell and featuring contributions from a team of prominent water scholars, is entitled: Navigating A Pathway Toward Colorado’s Water Future (2015).
