Strategies
Overview
Despite hope that an El Niño year would alleviate California’s exceptional drought, expectations are that water will once again be scarce in 2016-17. Farmers and urban areas alike will face restrictions, and wildlife that depends on rivers and streams will be stressed. This renewal grant to the Resources Legacy Fund will support its Drought Initiative, an effort to modernize state water policy to better respond to a less predictable water future caused by climate change and the growing demands put on the state’s water supplies. To achieve its goals, the fund will analyze water policy options and educate policymakers, the public, and the press.
