This grant will allow American Rivers to help facilitate a convening of Kresge’s water grantees and other experts to better coordinate national efforts around water, equity and climate change. Impacts of a changing climate, including extreme temperatures, prolonged drought, and intensified storms, demand that water-system infrastructure become more resilient and water-system governance become more inclusive for these systems to meet the needs of those that depend on them, especially low-income and people-of-color communities.
