Water Scarcity as a Cause of Potential Conflict


About creativeconflictwisdom

I spent 32 years in a Fortune Five company working on conflict: organizational, labor relations and senior management. I have consulted in a dozen different business sectors and the US Military. I work with a local environmental non profit. I have written a book on the neuroscience of conflict, and its implications for conflict handling called Creative Conflict Wisdom (forthcoming).

    This is the issue for the coming decades, I believe. I’m tweeting your post. Keep up the important work.

  2. @Thomas Ross. Thanks Thomas though we have to be careful about water as a cause of war. Despite all the wars fought in the Jordan Valley since 1948 there has never been any actual attack on the water supply during those wars. Water has also managed to be left out of Pakistan-India fighting. So while the potential for water to cause conflict is there, it is so extremely important that thus far it has largely escaped the fighting over directly in most places in the world.
