Description

In anticipation of a dry form of climate warming, this paper explores the economical mix of adaptation, technologies, policies, and water management changes available to minimize water supply impacts. The modeling tool used in the research, California Value Integrated Network (CALVIN), has been applied to water policy and management problems in the past. The results suggest that increased flexibility in water management activities, such as water market activity, and conjunctive uses of surface and groundwater, will play a beneficial role in protecting California’s water supply in the face of a drier and warmer climate.
