With the regional water crisis weighing so heavily on everyone’s minds, it’s no wonder that the Palestine Academy for Science and Technology and the Palestinian Water Authoirty have teamed up to host the 2nd International Conference on Water: Values and Rights.
The conference, to be held in Ramallah from April 13-15, will bring together academics, scientists, decision-makers, and more from a variety of sectors, and will feature prominent speakers from the Palestinian Territories, the United States, and the United Kingdom.
The conference will also address a variety of themes related to water management, water rights, and other aspects of water politics, as well as special themes including:
- The “Palestinian-Israeli Water Dispute,”
- “Cooperative Water Projects between Israel and Palestine: Pitfalls, Successes, and Lessons Learned,”
- “The Impact of Climate Change on Water Resources Management,”
- the “Red Sea-Dead Sea Conveyance Project.”
