What can city governments and major companies do to improve efficiency of water use, reduce their environmental impact, and deal with a changing climate? On the occasion of World Water Day, March 22, the Sustainable Cities Collective presents an exclusive webinar about how global cities are dealing with the challenge of managing their most essential resource.  Expert panelists will tackle water supply and quality issues, environmental concerns, weather events, and the growing influence of climate change.

Join the webinar to discuss:

  • What drier climates and unpredictable weather could mean for water management
  • The greatest strains on water supply and quality, and the potential effects on populations
  • Solutions like graywater use, green infrastructure, cistern systems, desalination, and more
  • Agricultural and manufacturing processes that minimize water consumption

Participants will include my NRDC colleague (and green infrastructure expert) Larry Levine.  The session begins at 1pm eastern.
