Stratecon Partners with WWI to Support Academic Research on Pressing Water Challenges

Stratecon Inc. has partnered with World Water Institute (“WWI”) to provide support for curriculum development and student and faculty research that seeks to find solutions to the world’s most pressing water challenges.

Stratecon President and WWI Board Member Rodney T. Smith said, “With WWI’s focus on using market mechanisms to solve water resource management problems, there was a natural fit between WWI and Stratecon.”

WWI is a nonprofit research organization bringing together the disciplines of economics, finance, natural resource management and law to develop strategies and to analyze innovative solutions to public policy water issues.

WWI Co-Founder and Executive Director Lee West will speak about WWI to representatives from various universities who are interested in developing or furthering a water management curriculum and would like to engage in WWI’s mission to promote market-based approaches to water resource management that increase use efficiency, encourage conservation, and mitigate waste. The talk will take place on April 8th at the Texas Christian University Neeley School of Business Values and Ventures Business Plan Competition.
