Villanova Event Explores Water Crisis and Peacebuilding

From Villanova University’s Media Room:

Many Americans never give water a second thought. It’s readily available, abundant, clean and inexpensive. But, for nearly a billion people around the world, most of them women and children, the daily drudgery of gaining access to clean water leaves them ill, impoverished and powerless. Add to the mix the political destabilization often caused by the growing scarcity of renewable water resources, pressures on existing sources and competing demands for access to clean water, and the potential for violence and a global water crisis becomes clear.
