Strategies
Overview
California's exceptional drought has resulted in urban water restrictions, cutbacks to agriculture, and such low water levels in rivers, streams, and wildlife refuges that fish and wildlife populations have been significantly declining. This grant to the Resources Legacy Fund would 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 would employ sound analysis, policy maker and public education, and outreach to the media. This grant would be part of the new California drought special initiative.
