About the Program

Four years into an especially hot drought, California faces major challenges in managing scarce water supplies. Where are we most vulnerable, and what lessons have we learned for improving water management for cities, farms, rural communities, and the environment? Join PPIC Water Policy Center director Ellen Hanak and a panel of experts for a discussion about the likely impacts of continued drought and what we can do to prepare.

This project was supported with funding from the California Water Foundation, an initiative of the Resources Legacy Fund.

Lunch will be provided.
