Portfolio Principles

Consistent with the Governor’s executive order, the Water Resilience Portfolio will incorporate these principles:

  • Prioritize multi-benefit approaches that meet multiple needs at once.
  • Utilize natural infrastructure such as forests and floodplains.
  • Embrace innovation and new technologies.
  • Encourage regional approaches among water users sharing watersheds.
  • Incorporate successful approaches from other parts of the world.
  • Integrate investments, policies and programs across state government.
  • Strengthen partnerships with local, federal and tribal governments, water agencies and irrigation districts, and other stakeholders.
