On Wednesday, September 20, 2017, along with the Environmental Justice Coalition for Water, we will be hosting a Forum on Drought Resilience for Small Systems in Sacramento, CA. The Forum will be the finale of a two-year research study to understand small system drought impacts and responses, as well as barriers to long-term drought and climate resilience. In addition to hearing preliminary findings from the research team, attendees at the Forum will discuss and develop policy recommendations that can address barriers to long-term drought and climate change resilience that were identified by small systems through interviews and regional workshops (Clear Lake, Modesto, and Salinas) conducted over the past two years.
The Forum on Drought Resilience for Small Systems will be held on Wednesday, September 20 from 9:00 am – 3:00 pm at the Bonderson Hearing Room in Sacramento, CA. For more information or to register, visit our Eventbrite Registration Page.
