Is Water Geopolitical?
Mr Jean-Christophe Victor, Scientifique Director of Laboratoire Lepac, Creator of the TV programme, “Le dessous des cartes” (Arte) addresses the questions around water in the world. His approach is both quantitative – consequences of water stress, minimum management, cropping patterns, improved irrigation techniques – and qualitative. Access to water – is this a source of tension or outright war? Pollution and is this a factor in social unrest? Mr .Victor uses a range of maps and projected visuals.
