A WORKSHOP FOR POLICY-MAKERS & CLIMATE SCIENTISTS
presented by the Land Air and Water Resources Department (LAWR) at UC Davis
TUESDAY, MAY 15th 2012 – UC Davis Conference Center

This one-day workshop will address specific cutting-edge climate science issues vital to the changing water supply of California over the next few decades. Topics include climate projections and their principal uncertainties, the impact of climate change on the water supply and possible ramifications for agriculture, power generation, and riparian/delta ecosystems. Discussions will focus on developing sound public policy in response to and in anticipation of a changing hydro-climate.. Focused presentations will be given by invited experts on current predictions and proposed responses. Poster presentations and discussion opportunities will promote deliberation and interaction among smaller groups of attendees. 

Attendance will be limited to 100 participants in order to better facilitate an exchange of ideas.
