About the Program

California’s urban and agricultural regions face different but equally daunting water challenges. Partnerships can help build a more secure water future for cities and farms, bring environmental benefits, and improve resilience across California’s water system.

Join the PPIC Water Policy Center and state and local experts for a panel discussion on how to build partnerships to develop and manage water supplies for broad benefit.

This research and event are supported with funding from the S. D. Bechtel, Jr. Foundation, a consortium of San Joaquin Valley farmers, and the Water Funder Initiative.
