Water, Expert Knowledge, and the Politics of Sustainability
April 30, 2012
Many countries in the world, but especially those in the Arabian Peninsula, are facing a current reality or imminent prospect of both shortages and degradation of their water supplies. National governments and international development agencies and network experts—ranging from engineers to economists—are struggling to tackle this daunting challenge. Based on fieldwork in Yemen, the Gulf, and Europe, this lecture analyzes the approaches that international players are taking in addressing water supply problems.
