Duke Water Network (DWN) is a student organization dedicated to connecting students across campus with community members and professionals in the fields of water management, science, and business. DWN works to organize employer and alumni networking events, informational trips to industries with intensive water use, and talks about relevant water science and policy research.
Rivers and waterways throughout the world flow across borders: international borders, state borders, city borders, property borders. The use of transboundary water resources requires cooperation and diplomacy. As climate change perpetuates water scarcity, cooperation can turn to conflict. This symposium will include discussions of interstate water issues in the United States as well as international water scarcity issues as they relate to conflict and migration. Learn from professionals in the field to see how academia, governments, NGOs, and local residents are addressing and impacted by issues related to water and borders.
