Recap of "Water @ Wilson: 50 Years of Water, Conflict, and Cooperation"
04/12/18 Filed in: Event Summary
Water is critical: it grows our food, generates our energy, and ensures our prosperity. To address the challenges that stand in the way of building healthy, prosperous, and peaceful communities, we must first tackle the challenge of water insecurity.
On the occasion of the Wilson Center's 50th anniversary, the Environmental Change and Security Program and nine co-sponsoring programs convened experts from government, the NGO sector, and academia for a comprehensive look at the first year of the U.S. Global Water Strategy and new research and practice on water, peace, and conflict.
