Michael Cohen of the Pacific Institute will attend the annual Colorado River Water Users Association Conference December 11th through 13th 2019. The conference enables key decision makers from the Colorado River Basin states to meet and discuss significant issues surrounding the Colorado River. Held over the course of three days, it will include a variety of speakers, panel discussions, and informative events.
Discussions will include discourse on upper and lower Basin perspectives, climate change and its effect on the river, and the future of the region. Approximately 1,000 water leaders, policy makers, and consultants attend the conference annually. Representatives from several tribes, such as the Jicarilla Apache Nation, Ute Tribe, and the Navajo Nation, will present a tribal water panel. This year, the conference will include speakers from the Southern Nevada Water Authority, the University of New Mexico, the California Department of Water Resources, Mexico’s National Water Commission, and many more.
The event will take place from December 11th through December 13th, and will be held at Bally’s Las Vegas Resort, located at 3645 Las Vegas Boulevard South, Las Vegas, Nevada.
