The Liquid Catalyst: How Will Water Resources Influence the Future of the Middle East and North Africa?
The Middle East and North Africa are among the regions with the highest water scarcity in the world. Until now, water disputes have been resolved through diplomacy. But governments pressed by climate change strive to gain more control of their shared water resources. Will water become a casus bellum for future armed conflicts in the region? What are the prospects for water cooperation in the Middle East? How will intensifying water disputes affect domestic situations in regional countries?
