International Hydro-diplomacy: Building and Strengthening Regional Institutions for Water Conflict Prevention (Farwa Aamerk, Nilanjan Ghosh, Dipak Gyawali, Tug˘ba Evrim Maden, Hamza Shareef Hasan, Jenniver Sehring, Dinara Ziganshina, Stimson Center)

Water, a resource that is becoming increasingly scarce, is critical in sustaining human life. The last century has witnessed a multifold increase in global water demand despite its waning availability. The rapidly growing urban populations coupled with increasing impacts of climate change have further exacerbated this challenge: more than two-thirds of the global population live with water-scarce conditions at least one month of the year. If current trends continue, water scarcity, with its cross-sectoral implications on politics and economy, has the potential to challenge national, regional, and international security as countries across the globe compete for shared water resources.
