Each year, the Foundation organizes conferences and workshops devoted to specific issues surrounding water. The Foundation’s annual Executive Briefing, held each spring in Sacramento, features speakers from stakeholder groups, the Legislature and governmental agencies who play important roles in making policy decisions about water. Past conferences have focused on climate change, the Delta, flood management and drought. Many of these conferences are conducted in partnership with state agencies and other organizations.
Although water year 2016 is an improvement over the previous four severely dry years drought conditions persist, with low water allocations for many San Joaquin Valley agricultural water users. Valley groundwater levels continue to decline as surface water shortages are made up by groundwater pumping.

Organized by the Water Education Foundation and the UC Davis Robert M. Hagan Endowed Chair, Toward Sustainable Groundwater in Agriculture: 2nd International Conference Linking Science and Policy will provide scientists, policymakers, agricultural and environmental stakeholders, government officials and consultants with the latest scientific, management, legal and policy advances for sustaining our groundwater resources in agricultural regions around the world.
Groundwater is the lifeline for many rural and agricultural regions and their associated cultures and populations around the globe and a cornerstone of global food production. Groundwater constitutes nearly half the world’s drinking water and much of the world’s irrigation water supply.
