How can Los Angeles get through our short-term drought emergency and to prepare for the long-term drier climate to come? LA continues to be mired in a drought, but the crisis provides the opportunity to invest in water conservation techniques that will ensure that the region becomes more climate resilient and sustainable.
Australia is the world’s driest inhabited continent, and between 1997 and 2010, it faced an unprecedented challenge. During what is now called the “Millennium Drought,” lakes and reservoirs turned to dust. Thankfully, the country emerged from the epic dry spell stronger and more water-resilient than ever thanks to policies and actions taken by its people and governments. In light of California’s current water crisis, TreePeople embarked on a Drought Solutions Delegation to Australia, co-hosted by TreePeople and The Energy Coalition. Their staff and select California officials studied the Millennium Drought and strategies that Australia implemented to make it through the historic drought and to evolve with a changing climate. 
Come join COTE and Treepeople to learn about the real world concepts and applications that they learned through an information exchange with Australian government agencies.
Come early to learn participate in TreePeople’s rainwater harvesting demonstrations at 6:30pm.
