GLOBAL WATER SCARCITY PROJECT (DEC 1, 2017)
After participating on the Virtual Water Trade? Lessons from the Commodities Market session, Chris was interviewed by the Pacific Council. Over the next quarter century, clean drinkable water will become more scarce as the global human population grows and supply decreases. Although investing in water is already commonplace, water is not openly traded in the marketplace like other commodities such as oil. As water becomes increasingly scarce and demand for water continues to grow, will this precious commodity become a resource that can be bartered for and traded on a futures exchange, like fuels, wheat, or gold? Will water become the commodity of the 21st Century?

UVA Bay Game
OUR WATER COUNTS (AUG 30, 2011)
Chris helped to coordinate the Our Water Counts initiative with GE and other corporate sponsors. Over 60 players came together in Washington DC to play the UVA Bay Game. This game allows players to take the roles of stakeholders, such as farmers, developer, watermen, and local policy-makers, make decisions about their livelihoods or regulatory authority; and see the impacts of their decisions on their own personal finances, the regional economy, and watershed health. It is an adaptable educational and learning tool for raising awareness about watershed stewardship anywhere in the world; a tool for exploring and testing policy choices; and a tool for evaluating new products and services.
