Abstract: One of the Massachusetts Water Resources Center’s goals is the transfer of information on water resources. This year we propose to hold a symposium series and a student symposium at UMass Amherst. Working with Drs. Anita Milman and Eve Vogel of UMass Amherst Environmental Conservation and Geosciences, respectively, we will organize two symposia on the governance and political economy of water. Following last year’s very successful Northeast Water Engineering and Science Symposium, we will again assist Dr. David Reckhow of UMass Amherst Civil and Environmental Engineering and a steering committee composed of his graduate students to organize this undergraduate and graduate student conference.
