    Arizona’s Water Future: Challenges and Opportunities

    Lincoln Institute of Land Policy

    11010 N. Tatum Boulevard, Suite D-101

    Phoenix, AZ 85028

    How conversant are you on one of the most critical issues facing businesses in Arizona?  Join us for a deeper dive into the current issues on water policy and planning and learn how your engagement in this area is critical for Arizona's future and the future of businesses in this state.

    We will start our lunch and learn with an overview of the issues followed by a business engagement discussion.  Our host for this event is the Babbitt Center.

    The Babbitt Center for Land and Water Policy, the centerpiece of a new initiative to integrate land use planning and the management of an increasingly scarce resource.

    Our presenter is Jim Holway Director, Babbitt Center for Land and Water Policy, Lincoln Institute of Land Policy


    Jim has 35 years of experience on water and natural resources management. In November, 2016, Jim was re-elected to represent Maricopa County on the Board of the Central Arizona Water Conservation District and currently serves as the board’s vice president. Jim previously directed the Western Lands and Communities program for the Sonoran Institute and the Lincoln Institute of Land Policy.

    Prior to joining the Sonoran Institute in 2009, Jim taught as a professor of practice in sustainability and served as the Arizona State University Coordinator for the Arizona Water Institute. He previously served as Assistant Director of the Arizona Department of Water Resources where he directed the implementation of Arizona’s groundwater management programs.

    Jim earned his bachelor’s degree in political science from Cornell University and both a Ph.D. and Master’s in Regional Planning from the University of North Carolina. Jim was also inducted into the College of Fellows of the American Institute of Certified Planners in 2012.

    We will be discussing some of the items listed below:

    • What is our overall water outlook in the Valley and in Arizona in 5 years,10 years, 20 years, 40 years?
    • Where are we with the Water Contingency Plan?
    • What role does the Babbitt Center for Water and Land Policy have in water policy and land use policy and who are the other major players in water policy and their roles?
    • What are the main considerations with the convergence of water and land policy?
    • Will businesses have a sufficient water supply for manufacturing and operations?
    • Are there existing and emerging technologies, business solutions, policy changes or other solutions that can help us with our water supply?
    • What are the most promising and effective water conservation measures that businesses and people and cities/states are doing?
    • What water policy issues are on the horizon for business to know about and engage with?
    • Will we be able to maintain our lifestyle with impending water reductions?
    • What impact can reduced water supplies have on our real estate market and overall economy?
    • How can we live prosperously with a reduce water supply?
    • What impact will reduced water supplies have on landscaping such as grass, trees, plants, etc. in our homes and commercial buildings?
    • What impact will the water reductions have on farming and what does that do to our food supply and economy?

    “It’s been said that water is the new oil, and if we want to ensure that future generations have adequate supplies, we have to understand the intimate connection between land and water. It’s a two-way street: how we plan and use land has an impact on water, and water availability has an increasing impact on how we can use land. We seek to bridge these two worlds to better meet the needs of people, agriculture, and nature.” - George W. “Mac” McCarthy, president and CEO of the Lincoln Institute.

    "To inspire, motivate and empower so that profit and planet exist in harmony, now and for the future."

    That is WHY we do what we do at the Arizona Green Chamber of Commerce!
