2020 Water Resilience Portfolio 

From Maven's Notebook, 11/30/22:

In 2020, the Newsom administration released the Water Resilience Portfolio, which is the blueprint for state agencies that set priorities for water management.  The portfolio was developed jointly by the Natural Resources Agency, Cal EPA, and the Department of Food and Ag, so it integrates the different programs, projects, and expertise of the agencies and their respective departments to achieve the objectives.

  • Prioritize multi-benefit approaches that meet multiple needs at once
  • Utilize natural infrastructures such as forests and floodplains
  • Embrace innovation and new technologies
  • Encourage regional approaches in watersheds
  • Incorporate successful approaches from other parts of the world
  • Integrate investments, policies, and programs across state government
  • Strengthen partnerships with local, federal, and tribal governments, water agencies and irrigation districts, and other stakeholders
