Water scarcity is a critical issue for New Mexico, Texas and Mexico, and the Two Nations One Water U.S.-Mexico Border Water Summit 2019 will address this challenge and more at the April 23-25 event at the New Mexico Farm and Ranch Heritage Museum.
The New Mexico Water Resources Research Institute at New Mexico State University will host the conference, which is in its second year.
“The Two Nations One Water conference provides a platform for a broad audience to explore adaptive water strategies for managing drought in the border region,” said Pei Xu, NMSU civil engineering associate professor.
“The conference will address the complex interrelationships among water, agriculture, energy, the economy and socio-political realities. It provides an opportunity for managers, policy makers, government and non-governmental agencies, researchers, students, farmers, ranchers, producers and other stakeholders to participate in learning, sharing and networking.
Participants from the U.S. and Mexico will present and share their experiences on water issues along the U.S.-Mexico border.
