ABOUT THE AWCC
The Northern Plains and Mountains Regional Water Program has undertaken a project funded through USDA-NIFA to research, compile, and assemble, in an accessible and educational manner, information regarding Ag Water Conservation.
The main focus of this project is on agriculture in the semi-arid and arid West and includes water conserving practices in agriculture across the various climates and regions of the U.S. The AWCC is a collaborative endeavor and strives to serve the needs of the nation's related institutions and individuals alike, to make better decisions about future water supply and demand.
The project's goals are to increase access to information to help build collaborative relationships between and among agencies, provide technical expertise regarding agricultural water conservation, and offer detailed information on the management, policies, and laws surrounding agricultural water conservation.
The targeted audiences include NIFA Water Coordinators, water resource managers, agricultural producers, and various decisions makers who are involved with water management, policy, and law throughout western United States and nationally.
The area of concentration is located primarily in the Western United States, but also includes regions where similar water conservation practices in agriculture are prevalent.
