Water in America

The Water in America Seminar discourse will address the implications of emerging socio-economic, ethical, technical and policy failures and threats to our water supply. We will arrive not just at an assessment of what water means in a changing America, but strategies for achieving the human right to water and sanitation that should be a birthright of all residents of the United States. Our focus will encompass the competing demands for water resources in a 21st century global society, including: a growing population, transboundary conflicts, persistent poverty, intensifying agriculture, growth of extractive industries, and crumbling infrastructure. And it will examine the needed technical, business and policy models that could address the concomitant social, economic and ecological concerns.
