“Weaponizing Water: Ancient Tactic, New Implications”
THIS IS A CRITICAL TOPIC that all leaders and engaged citizens understand. Water and warfare share a long history, and today’s implications are equally strategic and tactical. From the power struggle in the Arctic, to the war over water in the Middle East, to conflicts in Africa from depleted water resources, the intersection of the environment and security is an issue that will shape the twenty-first century. Norwich aims to be a thought-leader in this domain. Norwich University’s Environmental Security Initiative, a joint endeavor by the Peace and War Center and the Center for Global Resilience and Security, examines the nexus between environmental issues that intertwine with security concerns through research, internships, experimental learning opportunities, and programming.
These talks are offered as free, virtual webinars in U.S. Eastern Time.
