Park City, Utah (AP) - Western governors and water experts say conservation, technological upgrades and rethinking supply and demand will be key in meeting growing demand for water in a warming west.

About 600 people gathered Sunday for the first day of the Western Governors' Association Meeting.

The three-day meeting will focus on key issues in the west, including water use, climate change and energy.

Sunday's discussion focused mainly on managing water amid declining supplies and growing populations.

Colorado Gov. Bill Ritter called for increasing water conservation throughout the region.

The governors also approved a resolution calling for a national policy to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
