Tomorrow, the main event of the Water Dialogues will be the semester’s Ruth Dewing Ewing Social Science Lecture. The lecture will be given by Clive Lipchin, director of the Arava Institute, and will discuss desalination as one possible avenue for conflict resolution in the Middle East. It will focus on the creation of regional water markets for countries such as Jordan, Israel, and Palestine. This lecture will be at 7:00 PM in the CAPA Symposium.
Earlier in the day will be two events, one lecture entitled “An Overview of a Transboundary Water Dispute in the Southeastern United States,” on the challenges of domestic water rights negotiations, and the other by Patricia Johanson, on framing environmental problems as artworks.
