Effective water management is vital to the economy, ecology, and well-being of 21st century California. Decision-makers today face issues ranging from an aging infrastructure to persistent water quality problems, and the complexity of these issues is compounded by climate change.

Over the next ten years, California will make decisions that critically define our ability to manage water through extreme hydrological conditions. Now more than ever, the state needs leaders who can cross boundaries, connect resources, and choose bold action that serves California’s communities, farms, and nature.

The Water Solutions Network advances cross-sector collaboration among leaders focused on the future of water management in our state. The Network’s learning experience connects and supports individuals who value engaging all stakeholders and bridging differences to ensure sustainable and equitable water management in California.
