Water & Forests: Transforming traditional problems into historic opportunities
Once a trickle, now a deluge, access to clean reliable water is increasingly disrupted in the Pacific NW from population and economic growth, shifts in land use/management patterns, and rising weather variability from climate disruption. Such variability impacts watershed function, and water demand affecting the region’s economic security, hydropower supplies, downstream water availability for industrial and agricultural users, as well as environmental benefits of hunting, fishing, water for fish and wildlife and recreation. Traditionally, water conflicts have been intense, often legal and legislative battles pitting users against other users. But this problem can be turned into an economic opportunity. In this plenary session, we will hear about Oregon’s 100-year water vision and learn from innovative policy advocates and working landowners on how to build a new resource economy supporting businesses and landowners for protecting and restoring watersheds to ensure long-term resiliency for the region’s rapidly growing economy.
