Water is indispensable, but also highly variable. Communities around the world need a reliable and predictable supply of fresh water, but outdated infrastructure, poor management, and political battles can make this difficult—and this challenge is exacerbated by fluctuating weather patterns and frequent natural disasters.
In the fourth and final event of the “Sustainable Water, Resilient Communities” series, moderated by Wilson Center Global Fellow Ladeene Freimuth, experts will discuss urban watersheds, transboundary water management, water-driven security risks, and the governance of water access and availability amid an increasingly uncertain future. The event will take place Wednesday, May 30 from 9:30-11:30 a.m. EDT.
Scott Houston, Board of Directors, West Basin Municipal Water District
Will Sarni, Founder and CEO, Water Foundry
Kate Tully, Assistant Professor of Agroecology, Department of Plant Science and Landscape Architecture, University of Maryland
Kathleen White, Lead, Climate Preparedness and Resilience Community of Practice, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers
