The WATER Institute contributed to the following report released on June 22, 2011. The California Roundtable on Water and Food Supply (CRWFS) released a set of recommendations to shift thinking and spur action to balance the water needs of both farms and the broader environment.
Based on the concept of water stewardship, the group has called for water management approaches to be grounded in local environmental and socio-economic conditions and for efforts to optimize on-farm use while serving needs in the broader watershed. To advance this framework, the Roundtable has issued specific recommendations for state agencies, water suppliers, local water management groups, the agricultural community, and the research community.
