From Farms to Cities: Percolating New Ideas for Water Security

Sustainable Conservation a non-profit and IoES practicum client partner produced this video from an event held Sept 6, 2017

Following winter rains that pummeled the state, it’s easy for California’s five-year drought to recede in our memories. Resisting that amnesia is essential to our Golden State’s water future. We will explore how farms and cities are capturing rainfall when it is plentiful, and conserving water during dry times. The panel will promote constructive dialogue about how the State is working to recover from the drought, implement the Sustainable Groundwater Management Act, and find solutions that meet the needs of farming, communities, and the environment. Special thanks to Peter Kareiva and the UCLA Institute of Environment and Sustainability for moderating and co-hosting the event, and Environmental Science Associates, Latham & Watkins and Holland & Knight for their generous sponsorship.
