Abstract: When the WRPMD was formed, expectations about research were high, but in this new era we must reexamine the role of research. The greatest policy need for the water industry is institutional: better planning and coordination, an issue that belongs within the Division's mission. To achieve them, the needed ingredient is leadership of problem solving teams and in unraveling complexity through systems analysis. The WRPMD must recruit and build the leadership needed for these tasks, and this can happen if the Division's research activities are made relevant to the nation's water policy and management agendas.
