Belt: Scarcity of water increases chances for military conflict

Water is the key to survival, a resource that is in everyone’s best interest regardless of homeland or culture.

It could also become a future source of war.

Don Belt, a contributing writer for and former senior foreign editor of National Geographic magazine, spoke about the importance of cooperation at a time when water is becoming a scarce resource during Friday’s morning lecture in the Amphitheater. He was the last speaker of Week Four, themed “Water Matters.”

Throughout his lecture, Belt shared photos from other countries to showcase water issues in places he has visited during his career. He centered the presentation on what he calls “geography of hope.”
