Helping Unlock Federal Policy
Cultivating Conservation is a dynamic policy-focused firm founded on the core belief that smarter public policy is the result of the active engagement of the constituencies most impacted by Federal and State decision makers. We help clients and key constituencies understand this dynamic and unpredictable policy process, facilitate discussion of ways to better improve policy outcomes, and provide strategic advice on ways to achieve those policy objectives.
Cultivating Conservation’s long-range vision is to create a large source of stable public funding to help agricultural producers partner cooperatively with other sectors impacted by drought. Over 90 percent of consumptive water use in the West is used by producers to grow food and fiber. Longstanding and predicted future water supply challenges in the West are generating increasing conflict among water users. As the major and often senior water user in many areas, producers are at the center of these conflicts.
