Please join us at the first ever California-Israel Water Summit on March 2, 2016, in collaboration with the Consulate General of the State of Israel, The City of Beverly Hills, The City of Los Angeles, Netafim,  and Jewish National Fund.

The California–Israel Water Summit will bring together political and policy leaders, utility officials, investment executives, labor, business, and environmental leaders to discuss one of the most pressing issues facing Los Angeles and California - the future security of our water supply. The conference will go well beyond a superficial examination and raise questions of California’s water market dynamics and reviewing case studies of successful strategies. Author Seth M. Siegel and his celebrated New York Times best-selling book, Let There Be Water: Israel’s Solution For A Water-Starved World, will serve as a backdrop to the California-Israel Water Summit.
