Tuesday, October 8, 2019. 1:00PM. Webinar: Rural Water Issues: Progress and Challenges in Implementing California’s Human Right to Water. E. Joaquin Esquivel, California Water Resources Control Board; Susana De Anda, Community Water Center; Carolina Balazs, CalEPA. Sponsored by EPA Office of Environmental Justice. More information here.
This webinar will focus on how the State of California is developing and implementing a Human Right to Water Framework to address overburdened and disadvantaged communities, particularly those in rural areas. This framework involves policies, analytical tools and resources to ensure safe, accessible and affordable water for all. Our illustrious panel will discuss progress and challenges, including those related to climate change. As lack of safe, accessible and affordable water persists as a critical problem throughout rural America, we will be conducting a second webinar (Part 2) on model programs from other states.
