Water in California

Solving California’s Water Future

  • This is a past program

In order to achieve complete sustainability, Los Angeles must contend with serious finance, governance, environmental, and water management challenges. A panel of experts will discuss the impact of climate change on the city’s water supply and ways to improve long-term conservation and infrastructure, including a move toward local water.

Panelists: Adel Hagekhalil, assistant director at L.A. Sanitation; Neil Berg, associate director of science at the UCLA Center for Climate Science; and Erica Fernandez Zamora, director of organizing at the Community Water Center in the Central Valley. Moderated by Mark Gold, UCLA associate vice chancellor of environment and sustainability.
