Water, Conflict and Coexistence in Israel/Palestine

Friday, Nov. 9, UMC Rooms 382-386, 6:30 pm | In this free public presentation, Barbara Petzen of Middle East Connections will discuss the conflict over water resources and their control and allocation amongst Israel and Palestine and their neighbors. We will examine political, humanitarian, and environmental aspects of these questions, with special attention to the Jordan River valley and the Dead Sea, the status of the region's aquifers, and the rise of large-scale, export-oriented agriculture.
