This webinar will cover opportunities for creatively aggregating funding to be used for watershed Management. We will address questions including: · How can new revenue be generated for watershed management? · How can the revenue be pooled and managed regionally? · How can the revenue be spent to maximize water quality and community benefits? Participants will learn about existing revenue mechanisms for watershed protection across the country, case studies for regional watershed management, and justifications for wholistic watershed management. Participants will also learn about additional considerations that ought to influence the way in which these approaches are implemented.
Presenters: Evan Kirk, Project Director, and Erin Riggs, Senior Project Director, Environmental Finance Center at University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill
