[pccgrads] Fwd: Tues. 11/27 Talk: Water & the Environment in the Middle East

UW Program On Climate Change uwpcc at uw.edu
Mon Nov 26 11:26:45 PST 2018


--
Climate change has had a devastating impact around the world, especially in
dry areas experiencing historic droughts. Desalination -- converting
seawater to usable water -- is one strategy countries have used to avoid
the most catastrophic impacts of drought, but the environmental and
financial costs are high.

On Tuesday, 11/27, environmentalist Alon Tal of Tel Aviv University will
discuss how desalination has affected Israel, how the country is managing
the worst drought in its history, and what an increasingly water-scarce
world can learn from Israel's water challenges.
