Cross-Border Business Forum
May 30, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am
The Colorado River – Lifeblood of the Border Economy
California and Baja California have long worked together to create a vibrant, interdependent economy that is a model for binational cooperation. That economy could not exist and thrive without a key resource: water. The border communities are fortunate to have the Colorado River (CR) that delivers water reliably and at a reasonable cost for municipal, industrial and agricultural uses. Working within the framework of the 1944 Water Treaty, the US and Mexico work cooperatively to ensure that the CR continues to provide a reliable water supply to the border region.
The speakers will discuss the importance of the CR to the border region and detail the efforts in the US and Mexico to maximize water reliability and prepare for climate change impacts.
About the Cross-Border Business Forums
