Water and Conflict Discussion Archived

CRS and the Woodrow Wilson Center’s Environmental Change and Security Program sponsored a panel discussion today in Washington D.C., about water’s complex role in conflict and development. The event, “Water, Conflict and Cooperation: Practical Concerns for Water Development Projects,” was held at the Wilson Center in Washington, D.C. During the event, CRS launched its new publication titled Water and Conflict: Incorporating Peacebuilding into Water Development which describes how water scarcity, access to water supplies, pollution of water sources and water management across national boundaries increasingly play a role in disputes, political manipulation and, in worst cases, outright conflict.
