Talk on water conflicts and science panel about Al Gore’s new film

Today I gave an invited talk on the link between climate and water variations and conflicts and cooperation at the Stockholm Resilience Centre. We had an interesting discussion afterwards, touching among other things on the differences between domestic and international conflicts, the importance of water issues on the global policy agenda, and transnational dependency on water resources both from the surface and atmospheric water side.

After the talk I rushed to the press screening of Al Gore’s An Inconvenient Sequel at the UIP Stockholm office, after which I participated in a science panel discussing the film’s message with journalists. A fun and exciting day!
