Washington D.C., October 2, 2017 – The Horinko Group, a leading environmental consulting firm, is proud to announce their 2017 Summit, The Future of Transboundary Water Management – Cooperation, Informed Decision-Making, and Empowering Local Actors, to be held on October 12th, 2017 in Washington D.C. The Summit is a partnership with the Mannie Jackson Center for the Humanities Foundation, the Arava Institute for Environmental Studies, and The National Great Rivers Research & Education Center.
This year’s Summit will discuss implications of using big data analysis to reach better-informed decisions on the use of water resources. This method for water management has the potential for improving the human condition from the Jordan River in the conflict-torn Middle East, to the complicated issues of water rights in the Western United States, to the cyclic water pulse events resulting in droughts and destructive flooding along the Mississippi River. Empowering local actors to access and utilize big data with purpose and confidence is an important step in positioning those who govern locally to course correct onto a sustainable path forward.
