Frank Talk: Growing Arizona: Water for the Future

Frank Talk: Growing Arizona: Water for the Future

Water has played a vital role in the long history of thriving agriculture in Arizona. For generations, agricultural production was the linchpin of the state’s economy, and cotton, cattle and citrus production had a significant influence on how Arizona communities grew. Water continues to support farming, ranching, and more recently, urban population growth. As Arizona adjusts to a hotter and drier climate, what is the future of water for agriculture and urban communities? Can Arizona continue to grow with increased competition for water and shrinking resources? How can we grow and sustain water resources? Join us for an important conversation about water, growth, and our future.

The purpose of FRANK Talks is to encourage participants to weigh facts, provide the opportunity to put them in context, and consider different points of view. FRANK Talks inspire people to practice the skills of citizenship—to listen respectfully and engage thoughtfully on issues that affect our communities.

Frank Talks are provided by the Arizona Humanities and the Arizona State Library, Archives & Public Records.
