Increasingly rapid global change now presents Alaska with emerging challenges. Many of these lie at the interface of water and society as an ever-crowded world grapples with balancing quality, supply, and demand. Water is life and our approaches to its management, conservation and utilization will determine the survival and well-being of billions of people, both today and for the foreseeable future. How do we develop the North such that it is resilient and responsive? The conference will seek a better understanding of the issues that surround water ranging from food security to its role in health and sustaining the economy.
