Water resources are projected to become further strained in the future due to population growth and the effects of climate change. There is increasing concern by many international entities that future conflicts will be fought over water rights.
This lecture will focus on water resource stressors and areas of the world where future potential conflicts could arise due to diminishing water supplies. Gerald Gulley, PhD, is a professor of physics at Dominican University.
Admission is free.
