water policy

Instead of assuming the inevitability of conflict, it is possible to see water scarcity as an opportunity for cooperation, with states and communities realising the mutual benefit available to them through working together rather than competing.

Indeed, FoEME's experience has shown that if trust is built around shared water issues, it can then impact positively on other aspects of human relations, toward working cooperatively for common gain.

On April 16, CPD hosted a policy briefing on water and public diplomacy in Washington, D.C. as part of the CPD Water Diplomacy Initiative.
