We provide advisory services in the acquisition of water rights throughout the western United States and in the sale and leasing of water rights and water supplies to public and private sector water users, as well as provide proprietary research services, and expert testimony. Stratecon brings together the disciplines of economics, finance, natural resource management and law to develop innovative solutions to commercial and public water policy issues.

Stratecon also produces Journal of Water, Hydrowonk Blog and Stratecon Water Policy Marketplace:

Journal of Water is a paid subscription journal reporting on the important, path-breaking and innovative developments in water resources in the Colorado River Basin, Texas and elsewhere in the Southwest.

Hydrowonk Blog is an open intellectual marketplace for the water industry… a forum to exchange information and perspectives. Stratecon invites you to join in the conversation at Hydrowonk.com and click on Hydrowonk Blog.

Stratecon Water Policy Markets was developed as the platform for our prediction markets. Thousands of prediction markets have been used by the public and private sector to improve planning and decision-making. We believe it’s time for the water industry to embrace the potential power in the collective wisdom of prediction markets. We invite you to join the crowd in our new venture and make your predictions, as we address pressing future events confronting the water industry.  Your participation is free.
