Information About Climate Change and Water Resources

The Water Boards are committed to the adoption and implementation of effective actions to mitigate greenhouse gas emissions and adaptation of our policies and programs to the environmental conditions resulting from climate change. The Water Board is a member of the Cal/EPA Climate Action Team, the Water Working Group of Climate Adaptation Strategies Team, and the 20x2020 Agency Team. The Water Board is a sponsor of climate mitigation measures in the AB 32 Climate Change Scoping Plan. Water Board staff are actively engaged in preparation and review of sections of the California State Water Plan Update 2009 which incorporate climate mitigation and adaptation considerations.
