Carpe Diem West is focused on these priorities:

Healthy Headwaters Program

Colorado River Futures Program

Carpe Diem West Academy

Horizons Program

As new issues are identified, Carpe Diem West establishes working groups to identify potential responses in the policy and practice arenas. Carpe Diem West provides the communications process that Network members use to develop issues and make decisions, and provides policy briefs to further frame the issues. The working groups:

  • Highlight existing programs that are successfully addressing the priority issues and explore ways to replicate these programs and take them to scale where possible.
  • Pinpoint the scientific, economic, ecosystems information, and other tools needed to further develop policy and best practices objectives.
  • Create the framework for new alliances and initiatives by mapping out the next stages and identifying the necessary leadership.
