Sustaining Nevada


Nevada enjoys beautiful landscapes and diverse topographies complete with valleys, basins, and mountains. While rich in minerals and metals, Nevada faces significant water security challenges. Additionally, rapid population growth in the last decade has overwhelmed our infrastructure and ability to deliver public services. The Guinn Center recognizes that over time, natural resource challenges and sustainability issues can affect the state’s long-term economic growth trajectory.
