Water in the Middle East and Africa: A Nexus of Cooperation and Conflict, UCLA Covel Commons, Grand Horizon Ballroom

The severe water crises facing areas of the Middle East and Africa have significant implications for the health, welfare and security of the regions’ people. Today, issues related to water availability and quality – including food security, sanitation and health, and economic development – have become both more complex and critical to address in these parts of the world. In this context, the resource can be both a source of cooperation and conflict among and within communities and nations. The Water in the Middle East & Africa: A Nexus of Cooperation and Conflict Conference will provide a unique forum for scholars and experts to discuss the similar challenges linked to water resources facing the Middle East and Africa. The speakers will also share innovative technology and policy solutions from both regions that tackle problems at the local, national, and trans-national levels. Panel sessions will address key areas for understanding and addressing the challenges surrounding water resources, including the water-food nexus, health and environment, urban water scarcity, water technology solutions, and local and transnational challenges of water security - including the connections between water, civil unrest and involuntary migration. Open to scholars interested in issues related to water, the Middle East or Africa, professionals from industry and non-profit organizations, government officials, educators, students, and members of the general public who wish to learn about the challenges facing the regions and the innovative solutions being developed to overcome them. The Center for Global Management is a sponsor of this event. For more information, including schedule, speakers and pricing >>
