Access to water is a main component in human survival throughout history. Clean drinking water, plentiful water for agriculture, navigable waterways for commerce, rivers for hydropower, water sources for fisheries — all of these aquatic considerations and many more drive whether entire societies succeed or fail. Dive in with the Duke Alumni Forever Learning Institute as they explore the liquid of life in the World of Water webinar series.
Martin Doyle, Director of the Water Policy Program, will speak at "Infrastructure Priorities: Water’s Role in Promoting Equitable Planning and Investment," part of the virtual event series Beyond Talking Points: Policy Solutions for Environmental Justice. The event will feature faculty experts from across Duke and the Aspen Institute to discuss the connection between environmental justice and a variety of other policy areas.

As part of World Water Week Stockholm, August 27–September 1, Water Program director Martin Doyle will co-present Data Drought: An Assessment of Global Hydrological Monitoring Systems, August 27. The multi-stakeholder discussion will explore the challenges of and the potential solutions to the mismatch between the need for and the supply of data on water resources. The aim of the event is to assess global water monitoring infrastructure relative to current needs, to explore challenges and solutions to scaling up the global water monitoring system, and to provide a platform for defining next steps and avenues for collaboration. The event is co-convened by Xylem Inc., Duke University, the Smith School of Environment, and Enterprise at the University of Oxford, and The Aspen Institute.
Water Program director Martin Doyle will moderate the roundtable at the 2017 Aspen-Nicholas Water Forum in Aspen, Colorado, May 30–June 2. The 2017 forum will explore the past, present, and future of groundwater, depletion of which has led to stream flow losses, saltwater intrusions, land subsidence, and impaired water quality. Technological advancements in groundwater monitoring, modeling, and treatment are providing new understanding into how unique groundwater systems operate, and innovative management practices are beginning to offer lessons about sustainable groundwater management. This year’s roundtable of experts from multiple sectors will examine emerging groundwater topics, ranging from new measurement techniques developed by private industry to novel groundwater markets in Nebraska to new regulations in California.
Martin Doyle, director of the Water Policy Program at the Nicholas Institute for Environmental Policy Solutions, will moderate the panel "Data to Decisions: Using Data to Inform Decisions and Actions" at the National Conversation on Integrated Water Information for the 21st Century on July 13.
The Aspen Institute’s Energy and Environment Program and Duke University’s Nicholas Institute for Environmental Policy Solutions convene this water forum annually to address domestic water challenges in the 21st century with utility, finance, and emerging technology executives, along with policy makers and thought leaders. The Forum considers water infrastructure and investment; ecosystem and watershed functions; resiliency in the face of climate change; emerging technologies and finance.
The Nicholas Institute will host a day-long forum—convened in honor of its tenth anniversary—to assess how we can harness big data, cutting-edge technologies, and adaptation research to create science-based, interdisciplinary approaches attuned to the accelerating and dynamic change in the world.
The National Ecosystem Services Partnership, a Nicholas Institute for Environmental Policy Solutions initiative, will launch the Federal Resource Management and Ecosystem Services (FRMES) online guidebook for federal resource managers at the A Community on Ecosystem Services Conference (ACES) December 8-12 in Washington, D.C. The guidebook describes how ecosystem services can be integrated into agencies' planning and management processes.
Martin Doyle, Water Policy Program Director at the Nicholas Institute for Environmental Policy Solutions, will give the Boarland Lecture on Hydraulics at 1 p.m. March 26 at Colorado State University. The lecture, which is part of the university's Hydrology Days 2014, will cover Lagrangian and Eulerian approaches to sediment transport, biogeochemistry and environmental law.
