Director, Water & Agriculture, Water Division, Nature Program
Claire O’Connor focuses on the crucial relationship between water and agriculture, emphasizing solutions to water-resource challenges that will benefit both farmers and their non-farming neighbors. Her own family has operated a farm in rural Nebraska for five generations, which informs her understanding of the many challenges farmers face as they try to balance irrigation needs with conservation principles. She works closely with farmers, water managers, and stakeholders to ensure that the food we grow is not only safe and healthy but sustainable as well. O’Connor is a graduate of the University of Nebraska-Lincoln and Georgetown University Law Center. She is based in Santa Monica.
