Brown Bag Seminars - Policy Principles for the Red-Dead Conduit and Regional Solutions
Uri Shani, Professor for soil and water physics, Hebrew University of Jerusalem
Professor Uri Shani will address how active agreements between neighboring jurisdictions can lead to water solutions rather than conflicts. Like the Southwestern United States, Israel, Jordan, and the Palestinian Authority are experiencing increased water demands due to population growth and decreased supplies due to several factors, including changing climate. Professor Shani will emphasize that regional solutions should optimize across all available water resources in the region and promote efficient use of existing water sources.
