About the Workshop

On Monday, October 7, the Colorado Ag Water Alliance and Arkansas Basin Roundtable hosted the "Valuing Colorado's Agriculture: A Workshop for Water Policy Makers" at the Cheyenne Mountain Resort in Colorado Springs, CO.

This workshop was aimed at decision-makers who participate in the development of water management policies throughout the state of Colorado. Conference organizers invited prominent economists of national renown to share expertise on methods and approaches to the valuation of water as it is managed for agriculture.

The 1-day workshop examined both the direct and indirect benefits derived from the use of water to support an agricultural economy. The program featured moderated interviews with esteemed speakers, whothen participated in afternoon breakout sessions to further expound on the morning's topics.
