How Climate in South Asia is Becoming a Water Issue

Adil Najam, Director of the Frederick S. Pardee Center for the Study of the Longer-Range Future; Professor of International Relations and Geography & Environment, Boston University
Chaired by John Briscoe, Professor of the Practice of Environmental Health, HSPH; Gordon McKay Professor of the Practice of Environmental Engineering, SEAS

Climate Change has usually been viewed as a ‘carbon management’ challenge, but our failure to mitigate global climate change is ushering in the necessity of adaptation to climate change. In South Asia – as elsewhere, but possibly more than in many other places – this means that climate change will increasingly become a water management challenge. Neither the global politics of climate change nor institutions within South Asia seem to be prepared for this. This seminar will broadly discuss the challenges of climate change, development and security with a particular focus on what this means for South Asia as a region and for water as an issue.

2/11/11 How Climate Change is Becoming a Water Issue from South Asia Initiative on Vimeo.
