Water Security Around the World A Conversation with Aaron Wolf and FIU Experts
Monday, November 13, 2017 | 2 PM | FIU MMC | Graham Center, Room 243
The world’s rivers are straining under impacts of climate change, population pressure and economic development. When these rivers cross international boundaries, international diplomacy often struggles to adequately address related issues of water scarcity and competing water uses.
Join internationally renowned water expert Dr. Aaron Wolf and several FIU water experts for a discussion on the state of global water security. The event will explore these challenges to rivers and society by examining real-world examples of contemporary water conflicts and cooperation.
Dr. Aaron Wolf is Professor of Geography in the College of Earth, Ocean and Atmospheric Sciences at Oregon State University. His research focuses on issues relating transboundary water resources to political conflict and cooperation. He combines environmental science with dispute resolution theory and practice. Dr. Wolf has consulted on various aspects of international water resources and dispute resolution for the U.S. Department of State, the U.S. Agency for International Development and the World Bank, as well as several foreign governments. He is currently a Professor of Water Governance at UNESCO-IHE Delft Institute for Water Education based in Delft, Netherlands.
