Water World

Laurent Auguste, CEO, Veolia Water Americas
Jonas Minton, Water Policy Advisor, Planning and Conservation League
Jason Morrison, Program Director, Pacific Institute

Wild weather and growing population are increasing stress on global fresh water supplies. Scientists project more extremes of both too much  and not enough water in some places and times. In the United States, aging infrastructure is in need of upgrade, but cash-strapped governments have little appetite for big-ticket items these days. And then there’s the need to adapt California’s water capture and storage systems to the climate-driven "new normal." Is there a global water crisis? What role should corporations and governments play in stewarding water resources in the American West and in a growing and thirsty world? Join us for a look into the future of the essence of life.
