Debate: How to Report on Water Conflict and Cooperation
News reports can influence negotiations over shared water resources and play a key role in determining if the outcome is conflict or cooperation.
Join SciDev.Net as a panel of water experts, diplomats and journalists debate how to communicate in the sensitive context of international rivers, such as the Nile and Brahmaputra. How can journalists report in a critical, but informed, way on these complex topics? And how can scientific and technical facts about water be made accessible to broader audiences to support shared narratives on international rivers?
