PEER2PEER Webinar series:
Climate Change in Transboundary River Basins:
A Look at the Blue Nile River

Join us virtually on Friday, December 9 at 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM ET for our third PEER2PEER webinar.   With the threat of climate change, trans-boundary river basins become hotspots for tension, rivalry over resources, and possibilities of ‘water wars’. There is no difference in the Blue Nile River Basin between Egypt, Ethiopia and Sudan, where there have been decades of tension over water usage. Much of the empirical evidence from literature suggests that along global transboundary river basins, that we are more inclined to move towards cooperation than conflict (Wolf et al. 2003). Add climate change however, into this mix, and the situation becomes that much more complex. With the urgency of climate change, the need to act has become more pressing. This webinar will look at how climate change can be an opportunity for cooperation and collaborative pathways forward on the Blue Nile River Basin, as opposed to the rhetoric of propelling systemic conflict on this Basin. It will examine empirical evidence on the ground with various modalities of collaboration between the countries of this transboundary river basin.

PEER2PEER brings together global networks focusing on transboundary water management. Participants will synergize research initiatives, share data and tools, and foster collaboration in transboundary water security scholarship and capacity building to address critical gaps in research and education. The project will create an ecosystem for translating engineering, physical science, and social science research into plans and policies for stakeholders and governments at the local, state, and national levels. PEER2PEER is supported by the National Science Foundation.
