T.W.I.N: Peace through Environmental Diplomacy

September 20, 2019 @ 11:30 - 13:00

English | Open to all | Free admission                                                                                                    Dr. Asim Zia, University of Vermont and Dr. Susan Sgorbati, Bennington College, VT, will discuss their ongoing collaborative project T.W.I.N. established at a conference in 2017 at Dawson College. TWIN is now working on three transboundary rivers: the Kabul River between Afghanistan and Pakistan, the Jordan River between Palestine, Israel and Jordan, and the Kali River between India and Nepal. TWIN’s objectives currently are developing global water quality standards, implementing water monitoring by communities as citizen scientists, training and education, and facilitating negotiations between conflicting interests of groups accessing clean water. TWIN as a network of networks has an approach based on an understanding of complex systems, a convergence of levels of governance and a concern for the impact of forced migration due to climate change.
