Daugherty Water for Food Podcast - Episode 5
DWFI executive director Peter McCornick co-hosts with Gus Hurwitz, the Menard director of the Nebraska governance and technology center at the University of Nebraska. Law is a key focus of the conversation. Water regulations, and the subsidies and penalties that follow them, are not easy to change when a major weather event impacts water storage and use. As more and more weather events occur due to climate change, some advocates are suggesting that laws need to be more flexible and adaptable to promote equity. Guests: Rob Cifelli Felicia Marcus Francisco Muñoz-Arriola Anthony Schutz
