scarcity and conflict over freshwater resources have contributed to an “arc
of instability” stretching from West Africa through the Maghreb and across
the Mediterranean to the Middle East. Rural livelihoods are collapsing,
displacing many, and violent extremist organizations like Boko Haram, Al
Qaeda, and ISIS are gaining footholds in areas where governance is weak. As
local communities demand better provisioning of water, insurgent groups,
building on discontent, use water to finance their operations and as a
weapon of war. This panel
will examine the causes of water conflict in the region, discuss
implications for U.S. interests, and examine possible interventions to
support better water governance.
