A Matter of Survival: Learning to Cooperate Over Water

Meeting our global water challenges is no ordinary task: it is a matter of survival. As global climate patterns shift, access to clean water will become more challenging; water will grow scarcer in some places, while others will suffer from too much. The Global High-Level Panel on Water and Peace, convened by a coalition of 15 countries, has developed a set of recommendations designed to prevent water-related conflicts and to enable water management be an instrument of peace, not war.

On January 16, you are invited to a discussion with President Danilo Türk, Chair of the Panel on Water and Peace and former President of Slovenia, who will be joined by leaders from the U.S. and around the world to share their insights on water and peace, and bring into focus the new U.S. Global Water Strategy. This high-level, half-day event will provide an opportunity for U.S. water sector leaders to spur actionable partnerships and innovative, integrated solutions to the global water challenge.

Essentials of the DOE Hydropower Vision Report

Marla Barnes, Publisher and Chief Editor of Hydro Review, will be moderating a live webcast about a new Department of Energy (US) hydropower report and its implications. Dave Culligan and Rick Miller from HDR, and Linda Church Ciocci from NHA will be the presenters. They will discuss the essentials of the DOE Hydropower Vision Report and how to make the 400 page report work for you. They’ll break the report down and direct you to the key points that will help leverage the report to your benefit, using proof points to make your case.

The panelists will also address the NHA's plans to help the industry unlock hydro and secure nearly 50 GW of installed hydropower capacity by 2050.
