Water Quality Trading
August 27, 2020 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pmFree
This webinar will feature presentations by two experts, Brian Brandt and Mark Kieser, who are currently working on projects to advance water quality trading programs for farmers and ranchers. Mark Kieser is a Senior Scientist/Principal at Kieser & Associates, LLC, an environmental science and engineering firm. Mark is a specialist in water quality trading (WQT) program and policy development with 25 years of experience. Mark has examined trading in 28 states and is now actively working on unique variations of market-based approaches for water quality investments, particularly in the ag sector. He will speak on the current state of the traditional, regulatory-driven WQT interests, but importantly, where trading programs may be heading towards supporting supply chain-driven efforts focused on agricultural sustainability. Brian Brandt is the Agriculture Conservation Innovations Director at American Farmland Trust. Brian led AFT’s efforts to develop the first multiple-credit ecosystem services market in the country. Brian’s presentation will be focusing on the lessons learned from the Ohio River Basin Water Quality Trading Project and the development of a new voluntary water quality trading market.
