Adapting to a Parched Future: Cities, Development, and the War for Water


UCLA School of Law

Morrison & Foerster sponsored the UCLA Climate Change Center event focused in water issues. The panel discussion covered: How will the shrinking supply of water for Southern California affect urban and suburban development in the Southland? How should policymakers, water suppliers, local governments, and developers respond? What new litigation and other risks do developers and water managers face in this new era? And what, if anything, does this have to do with climate change?

Panelists included Jeff Kightlinger (Metropolitan Water District), Ellen Hanak (Public Policy Institute of California), Mark Gold (Heal the Bay), Peter Hsiao (Morrison & Foerster), and Cara Horowitz (UCLA Emmett Center on Climate Change and the Environment).
