The Water for Agriculture (W4Ag) is a 4-year, multidisciplinary USDA funded project that studies stakeholder engagement as a means to address complex water problems in agricultural working landscapes. To do this, team members are facilitating, studying and supporting stakeholder working groups in 5 projects sites across diverse water contexts in Arizona, Nebraska and Pennsylvania. In this panel discussion, project personnel will share insights into several challenges and adaptations related to undertaking multidisciplinary work in partnership with community members.
