Water Quality Trading as a Community Tool
November 30, 2006
Fisher Auditorium, Ohio Agricultural Research and Development Center

As Ohio?s population growth is relatively flat and the cost of services continue to rise, we are faced with important decisions for the future development and sustainability of Ohio.  Effective communities provide opportunities for economic growth, social strength, and environmental protection.  Water quality trading is one such method to address these three objectives.

Regional Sustainability

People and professionals across the region and in most areas of work can benefit from a focus on regional sustainability. Future grant opportunities within USDA and elsewhere are increasingly being linked to sustainability. Successful regions in a globalizing world economy will be those attentive to sustainability.
Development is, by definition, sustainable if it meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs. Sustainable development follows three guiding principles:  a) Economic prosperity ? Extension Theme: Creating Jobs for Ohioan; b) Ecological integrity ? Extension Theme: Maintaining and Enhancing Ohio?s Natural Environment; and  c) Community livability ? Extension Theme: Strengthening and Enhancing Communities and Neighborhoods
