Peter Engelke, Chuck Chaitovitz, and David Michel will lead an effort to develop a strategy to cope with political stresses within societies and among countries over access to limited supplies of water. They will conduct interviews and hold workshops with key stakeholders, develop language for a presidential policy directive on water strategy, and design a strategy and process to engage the key powers encompassing the Asian mountain ranges that supply the region’s major rivers. The project’s findings will be presented in a draft policy directive and a series of papers.
