Foster community resilience in the face of a changing climate CONSERVATION AND CLIMATE CHANGE.
The impacts of climate change are felt at even greater levels in the African-American community. In California, climate change has led to lengthy droughts, raging fires, flooding and increasing temperatures. Educating the African-American community on the resources that are available to help combat the effects of climate change from water utilities and others is an important aspect of CAAWEF’s outreach. In recent years, water conservation measures were mandated statewide to address prolonged droughts. Conservation is an important response to climate change and equally important tool for controlling water rates.
