“Would Climate Change Really Affect the Cooperation and Stability of International Water Treaties?”
It is expected that with climate change, the magnitude of flow variability in rivers will increase and affect existing water management schemes. International river basins, governed by treaties, are especially vulnerable if the treaties are connected to rigid institutions for the allocation of the basin water among the riparian states and the various sectors that use the water. The presentation will focus on two aspects of this problem: (1) is increased water variability leading to less cooperation (more conflict)? and (2) how can riparian states address the impact of climate change on the stability of their treaties? (click here for full Abstract)
Dr. Dinar’s research focuses on international water and cooperation, approaches to stable water allocation agreements, water and climate change, economics of water quantity/quality, and economic aspects of policy interventions and institutional reforms. Dr. Ariel Dinar, Director, Water Science and Policy Center, Center, University of California Riverside, was formerly Lead Economist and Coordinator of Climate Change Research in the Development Research Group at the World Bank in Washington.
He will be available to meet with interested students and faculty on the morning of Thursday January 13th. Please contact Lisette Staal ([log in to unmask]) if you are interested in meeting with him.
