The State of California, in response to the growing threats of climate chance, created the first California Adaptation Strategy in 2009.

Today, the California Natural Resources Agency is updating the Strategy. This important policy will guide us in coming decades, determining how the state will thrive in the face of a changed environment. Safeguarding California: Reducing Climate Risk lays out nine issue areas that will be impacted by climate change -- the most vital issue of which is water.

On February 12, we invite you to join us in a discussion of California's water future. You'll hear the scientific forecast and what we can do to safeguard our future. We will come away with recommendations for California's Adaptation Strategy.

"Climate change adaptation is mainly about water. Water is the primary medium through which climate change influences the Earth's ecosystems and therefore people's livelihoods and well-being." -- UN-Water
