  • Analyzing historical and current social, policy, and economic contexts to identify incentives and policies that may be most effective at encouraging wider adoption of water-​use efficient and water-​conservation oriented practices
  • Predicting impacts on regional income and employment in various sectors of the economy under different water availability, commodity, policy and climate scenarios
