Australia is the world's driest inhabited continent. Between 1997 and 2010 it faced an unprecedented dry spell, known as the "Millennium Drought," in which lakes and reservoirs turned to dust. Thankfully, the country emerged from the epic dry spell stronger and more water-resilient –thanks to action taken by its people and governments.
In light of California's current water crisis, TreePeople has been studying Australia's success to develop and implement a sustainable approach to the water crisis in our own city.
