Issues of water quality, water quantity, and water equity have always been critical to society and ecosystems. Climate change has made these questions more pressing and often, more complicated.

How are courts preparing for a changed and changing climate? What are courts doing now, and what are some planning to do? Are there best practices for making sure the judiciary has the necessary resources for resolving some of these complex problems related to water?
