On Tuesday, March 20, Pacific Institute Senior Research Associate Sarah Diringer will give a presentation on multiple-benefit analysis of water investments at the 2018 Natural Capital Symposium at Stanford University.
Despite watershed conservation’s potential to reduce risk and produce multiple benefits, an inability to establish baseline conditions and predict the outcomes of interventions poses limits to informed watershed management. The Pacific Institute, in collaboration with a wide range of partners, is developing a framework and resource toolbox to improve the consistency, reach, and implementation of multiple-benefits analysis of water investments. Sarah will discuss this work during the symposium’s session on “Connecting Science, Tools and Processes for Watershed Management and Securing Freshwater Ecosystem Services.”
The session will take place from 9:00 to 10:30 AM on March 20 at Stanford University’s Paul Brest Hall (East), located at 555 Salvatierra Walk, Stanford, California, 94305.
