Seminar: Dangerous waters: Escalating water conflict in the Indus River BasinMay 7, 12:00pm - 1:00pm
Honolulu Campus, 1601 East-West Road, John A. Burns Hall, Room 3121/3125 (3rd floor)
Recently Pakistan has become one of the least water secure nations in the world and faces an impending water crisis. Pakistanâ€™s severe water shortages highlight its dependence on the Indus River Basin and bring to the forefront a conflict with India over control of the basin. Indiaâ€™s control over key headwaters in the Indus Basin negatively and disproportionately affects Pakistan and risks the possibility of a war over water resources. This presentation will provide a game theoretic insight into the Indus River Basin conflict and consider possible institutional solutions that will benefit both countries.
