Water management is conflict management. Regardless of the scale, ensuring that the needs of the people and ecosystems that rely on this critical resource are met effectively requires comprehensive understanding of both water science and water cooperation & diplomacy, including dispute mitigation, management, and resolution. This webinar will investigate trends in water conflict management worldwide, and survey some skills necessary to address and transform water conflict at different scales, such as between users, sectors, states, and nations.

The instructors have extensive experience in research and training in water conflict management, as well as in facilitation and mediation in water dialogues worldwide. They represent two of the universities that partner to offer an MSc in Water Cooperation & Diplomacy — IHE-Delft in the Netherlands and Oregon State University, respectively.

Q&A to follow. PDH credit available to all attendees.
