Here’s what he said:
There are hundreds of water basins and aquifers that straddle our political boundaries, at both international and national levels. Neighbours stick their own straws into the same glass. This has historically led to both conflict and cooperation.
“Over the last 60 years there have been more than 200 international water agreements and only 37 cases of reported violence between states over water.”
In the spirit of World Water Day, and in an effort to contribute towards transboundary cooperation, I propose that all us waterbloggers (and other bloggers too!) dedicate one or more of our posts that day or beforehand specifically to transboundary water issues. What’s more, I further invite you to email your posts’ URLs to me at crikeycreek/gmail/com once they’re up so I may link to all of them from one central location, and thus provide an archive of the collaboration.
Sound kind of like a carnival.
