Posted Date: 01/04/2016
This week's question is based on the HDIAC Webinar “A Detailed Global Map of the Hydro-Economy: Water Footprints, Teleconnections, and Indirect Security Risk of Drought,” presented by Dr. Ruddell from Arizona State University. With drought, climate change and unsustainable water demands existing within our society, there is an increasingly urgent need to invest in security, anticipate water-induced conflict and manage the water supply.
