The Rise of Water Diplomacy

In this video, Benjamin Pohl, senior project manager with policy think tank Adelphi, introduces their new study, “The Rise of Hydro-Diplomacy,” at an event at the World Water Week 2014 in Stockholm. The report emphasizes the need for foreign policy makers and diplomats to realize and embrace the opportunities that Water Diplomacy can offer to them by:

  • exerting political leadership in fostering intra-basin cooperation and integration;
  • connecting and reinforcing appropriate institutional structures for coordinated and cross-sectoral, comprehensive engagement; 
  • strengthening the diplomatic track of trans-boundary cooperation on water by investing more in training and capacity-building, expanding efforts to build confidence in shared basins, and improving water-related crisis response and conflict resolution mechanisms.
