Woodrow Wilson Center’s Environmental Change and Security Program’s “New Security Beat”: 5 Focal Points for U.S. Global Water Strategy (And Submit Your Own Too)
In response to the U.S. Department of State’s public call for comment on its global water strategy, Ken Conca, fellow at the Wilson Center and professor of international relations at American University’s School of International Service, discusses five critical focal points for consideration: “1. Support [Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 6 on water] and ensure that U.S. efforts are consistent with its principles … 2. Strengthen the human right to water and rights-based approaches to water governance, management, law, and policy … 3. Strengthen international water law … 4. Make international water law more adaptable and ‘climate-smart’ … 5. Do no harm” (11/3).
