Sandra Postel Lecture on water resource policy

  • Albuquerque Academy (map)

Tuesday, March 4
Simms Center for the Performing Arts, Auditorium
Lecture will take place from 6 to 7:15 p.m.

Join Sandra Postel, director of the independent Global Water Policy Project, in a discussion of global and local water resources and policy. Postel will provide a global outlook, and also will look specifically at the Southwest and what each of us, as citizens, can do to change the course of water consumption.

In 2010, Postel was appointed Freshwater Fellow of the National Geographic Society, where she serves as lead water expert for the Society’s freshwater efforts. Postel is co-creator of Change the Course, the national freshwater conservation and restoration campaign being pioneered by National Geographic and its partners.

A leading authority and prolific author on international water issues, Postel has been hailed for her inspiring, innovative, and practical approach to promoting the preservation and sustainable use of freshwater. She is author of Pillar of Sand: Can the Irrigation Miracle Last? and Last Oasis: Facing Water Scarcity, chosen by Choice magazine as a 1993 Outstanding Academic Book. Last Oasis appears in eight languages and was the basis for a 1997 PBS documentary.

This lecture is offered free of charge, but space is limited.
