DESCRIPTION:
The seminar will be held for the second consecutive year and will deal with: 261 basins of the world’s rivers and lakes are running through more than one country and hundreds of aquifers stretch across international borders – about half of the world water sources are cross-boundary sources. As scarcity of water increases dramatically due to population growth, rising standard of living and depletion of natural water resources the competition between stakeholders raises. During the last decades of the 20th century the prevailing view was that the interaction between those international actors is likely to be a conflict which may lead to the fulfillment of the prophecy “war of the 21st century will be about water”. But research and practical experience showed that other options are prevailing. The students will be introduced to the complex world of management of international water resources both in concepts and much more through the practical experience gained by Ambassador Aviram.

 

PROGRAM SCHEDULE:

  • Understanding the source of the conflict in theory and practice.
  • War and cooperation – the water diplomacy in practice.
  • Water conflicts in the Middle East – negotiations for life or death.
  • Indo-Potamia – a negotiations role-play over shared water source.
