Top experts will present talks on how water scarcity, exacerbated by climate change, could shape political and environmental change in the Middle East for decades to come. How will conflict or cooperation over transboundary water resources shape the region's future and affect its people, environment and economy? Sponsored by the Nicholas School of the Environment, the Humanities Futures Initiative at the John Hope Franklin Humanities Initiative, and the Duke University Middle East Studies Center.
