Conflict hot spots: Emergence, causes and consequences [Book Review]
By Alex Braithwaite. Edition 1st Edition. First Published Imprint Routledge. Pages pages. Export Citation.
A new study from the Joint Research Centre JRC is reporting that a combination of climate change and population growth will elevate competition among countries for limited water resources. The researchers have identified five global hotspots where water scarcity may cause major conflict in the not-so-distant future. Scarce water resources can cause or worsen political tensions, regional instability, and social unrest.
The goal of this research is to implement strategies that may promote cooperation among countries. Water conflicts are more likely to become an issue in areas that are already experiencing water stress, such as regions along the Nile, Ganges-Brahmaputra, Indus, Tigris-Euphrates, and Colorado rivers.
Using a new machine-learning approach, the JRC scientists analyzed the conditions and factors that will most likely to lead to water management issues. First, we wanted to highlight the factors which lead to either political cooperation or tensions in transboundary river basins.
