The League of Women voters invites the public to tune into a discussion with an expert on “the water/energy/food nexus,” who will be speaking on the history of water systems and infrastructure in California, water demand and what needs to change, and visions for responding to future water use and needs.
Newsha K. Ajami is the director of Urban Water Policy with Stanford University’s Water in the West program. She specializes in sustainable water resource management, water policy, innovation, and financing. According to her bio on the Stanford website, her research has focused on “the improvement of the science-policy-stakeholder interface by incorporating social and economic measures and effective communication.”
She’s also the Chief Strategy and Development Officer for Research in the Earth and Environmental Sciences Area at the Lawrence Berkeley National Lab and a mayoral appointee to the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission.
She will be joined by a member of the League of Women Voters of California’s Water Committee, who will discuss the League’s positions on water resources, what the LWV is doing to support these positions, what issues they are monitoring and actions they are recommending.
