28 May 2019: Talk on 'India’s Inter-State Water Wars: Causes, Cures, and Consequences'

From the San Francisco Bay area to Sao Paulo to Riyadh, water shortages increasingly cloud economic forecasts. But nowhere is the risk greater than in South Asia, where India, the largest economy and most important regional power, faces crippling shortages and a lack of consensus on what to do about them. In turn, water problems threaten to drag down India’s economic growth and slow its rise to regional power. In this talk, Scott Moore will draw on his recent book, Subnational Hydropolitics: Conflict, Cooperation, and Institution-Building in Shared River Basins, to explore some of the causes of India’s many inter-state water disputes, and what they say about the state of India’s federal system. He'll also discuss some promising ways to convert India’s pervasive sub-national water wars into cooperation.
