Global Water Security
Christopher Kojm (ed)
This report -- based on a National Intelligence Estimate -- is designed to answer the question: How will water problems (shortages, poor water quality, or floods) impact US national security interests over the next 30 years? The year 2040 was selected as the endpoint of this research to consider longer-term impacts from growing populations, climate change, and continued economic development. For the Key Judgments, the report emphasizes impacts that will occur within the next 10 years. The core classified analysis focused on a finite number of states that are strategically important to the U.S. and transboundary issues from a selected set of water basins (Nile, Tigris-Euphrates, Mekong, Jordan, Indus, Brahmaputra, and Amu Darya). This report concludes that while wars over water are unlikely within the next ten years, water challenges ńˇ˝- shortages, poor water quality, floods -- will likely increase the risk of instability and state failure, exacerbate regional tensions, and distract countries from working with the U.S. on important policy objectives. As a consequence of water problems globally, the demand for U.S. assistance and expertise will increase. The newly created U.S. Water Partnership will mobilize the ńˇýBest-of-AmericańˇŁ to provide safe drinking water and sanitation and improve water resources management worldwide. Figures. This is a print on demand report.
