Lessons from California
California is facing many of the same climate change challenges that BC is, including increasing water use alongside growing water scarcity. Both jurisdictions are implementing new policies and regulations to manage complex water systems.
Dr. Michael Kiparsky, founding Director of the Wheeler Water Institute at the Center for Law, Energy & the Environment at the UC Berkeley School of Law
Dr. Josué Medellín-Azuara, Associate Professor at UC Merced and Director at Davis Center for Watershed Sciences, will discuss how implementation of water policies and regulations for surface and groundwater have impacted the California agriculture industry.
Speakers will discuss lessons that can be learned from California, sustainable water management, equitable water use in the context of climate change, and key water governance challenges and successes.
