The rural areas of California have never been more important to the overall economic and social health of the state of California. As the state struggles with the
issues of drought, groundwater management, climate change, forest health and fire prevention, and economic development, the diverse rural regions of
California provide many opportunities for statewide solutions. State and regional planning rarely consider rural issues to the degree urban communities are
studied and planned. In order for California to successfully address these challenges and benefit all residents, policymakers and planners need to understand the
interconnections between rural and urban communities and engage with and invest in rural communities to develop strategies and programs that meet their
needs. This session will explore tools and opportunities that could strengthen the health and prosperity of rural California and increase statewide sustainability.
