SYMPOSIUM: Addressing Climate Impacts on the Sacramento Region’s Water Supplies and Environment

When:
October 14, 2020 @ 1:00 pm – 5:00 pm
2020-10-14T13:00:00-07:00

Featuring Lieutenant Governor Eleni Kounalakis—invited—who was instrumental in the Water Forum’s formation two decades ago through her active leadership and facilitative role in the negotiations of the historic Agreement.

As global temperatures rise, climate change is projected to have far-reaching implications on how California and the Sacramento region manage water supplies for both people and the environment of the lower American River.

Join the Water Forum at a virtual symposium in exploring new cutting-edge science that describes the projected impacts of climate change on the Sacramento region’s water supplies and a suite of potential solutions to address increasing threats from more frequent and intense floods and droughts.

The half-day symposium will take a special look at how to address impacts on vulnerable and sensitive communities, which are expected to feel the effects of climate change the most, as well as the role of the Water Forum in facilitating a collaborative path forward to meeting the co-equal goals of providing reliable and safe water supplies for the Sacramento region and preserving the environment of the lower American River.

The symposium will be followed by a special virtual reception to celebrate the Water Forum’s 20th Anniversary, the region’s progress toward reaching the co-equal goals and a glimpse at what’s to come for the Water Forum.

Offered in partnership with the Capital Region Climate Readiness Collaborative.
