Desertification, left; Houston neighborhoods flooded, right

There is a global water crisis — increasing drought, desertification, floods, migrations, and social justice stressors. This forum will focus on the connection between the unfolding climate catastrophe and the water crisis; outline a global view of the ecological  problems; focus on places that serve as case studies of resource scarcity and conflict; and point toward possible solutions.
