Addressing Our Global Water Future
September 30, 2005
On September 28, 2005, after a year of extensive background research, two conferences hosted in February and March 2005, and collaboration with several experts, the Center for Strategic and International Studies and Sandia National Laboratories released a White Paper outlining the major conclusions of the Global Water Futures project. The goal of the project was to generate fresh thinking and concrete policy recommendations on how the United States can (1) better address future global water challenges and (2) more efficiently leverage and deploy available technologies. The White Paper, "Addressing Our Global Water Future," meets these goals by exploring four themes supported by fourteen main "Findings" that together highlight the core tenets of an integrated, comprehensive U.S. foreign policy toward global water challenges.
