California is in a drought of two kinds: one caused by a lack of rain and snow and another one caused by a lack of housing for people of all incomes. We asked leaders at the Summit what the state needs to do better, when it comes to managing our natural and housing resources.

There are many reasons why California’s population continues to grow. In fact, in the next 40 years, it’s projected there will be more than 50 million people calling the Golden State home. Managing the state’s landscapes and water and ensuring the state has enough housing must take center stage.

Connecting California’s urban and rural lands will better provide food and clean air and water, all the while making sure there are enough places to live, work and play.

At the second annual California Economic Summit, held in Los Angeles, Housing and Working Landscapes were adopted as two new signature initiatives. Regional leaders discussed ways to successfully integrate the two to ensure California continues being the place to be.
