White House Water Summit: March 22, 2016
All of us are inherently connected to water through the food we eat, the water we drink and use in our daily lives, the electricity that powers our homes and businesses, the products we buy, and the ecosystems and environments that sustain our lives and our communities. As climate change affects our Nation’s water supplies, and our population continues to grow and shift, it will become increasingly important to develop and implement innovative, long-term strategies for making sure we have enough water when and where we need it. To succeed, these strategies must rely on expertise and perspectives from the Federal, state, regional, local, and tribal levels, and from other stakeholder groups.
On March 22, 2016, in conjunction with the United Nations World Water Day, the Administration will host a White House Water Summit to raise awareness of water issues and potential solutions in the United States, and to catalyze ideas and actions to help build a sustainable and secure water future through innovative science and technology.
