Stakeholder Affiliate Group

During the four years of the Water for the Seasons program, researchers will work with a Stakeholder Affiliate Group (SAG) to guide research activities. The twelve person SAG is made up of representatives from many of the diverse communities that use and depend on water from the TCRS.

Stakeholder involvement in the WftS project is extremely important, and will improve the practicality and usefulness of the research. The diversity of the SAG is important to the integrity of the research, as climate change and extreme climate events are likely to affect each group differently.
