Pressures of population, drought, and changing water use have provided the impetus for numerous innovations in water law and management in recent years. The Center's annual conference, “Innovation in Western Water Law and Management,” looks at innovation and change in five areas - water planning, special water management areas, negotiated settlements of tribal water rights, conjunctive use of ground and surface water, and public values in water decision making. Each session begins with talks by experts from several western states, and is followed by panels of these speakers plus others, as listed. Former Governor Bruce Babbitt of Arizona suggests "Let's Give the Public Lands to the People" at his lunch talk.
