Cora Kammeyer, Research Associate at the Pacific Institute, will present on urban climate resilience and water sustainability in California. The event will take place at the Chabot Space & Science Center in Oakland on Tuesday, July 17th, at 7:00p.m. and is not open to the public.
California supports 12% of the United States population with only 1% of the country’s average rainfall, and has some of the most intricate water conveyance systems in the world. Urban areas are expanding at an unprecedented rate, and climate change is leading to hotter, longer droughts interspersed with more intense storms. This puts California’s cities at a critical nexus for water sustainability and climate resilience. Ms. Kammeyer’s talk will focus on how smarter design and management of urban landscapes can solve water challenges and mitigate climate impacts.
