Water, Energy, & Security: Colliding Imperatives
Start Date: 3/21/2013Start Time: 1:15 PM
End Date: 3/21/2013End Time: 4:30 PM

Event Description:
There is widespread awareness that both energy and water are vital for human security. Water is essential for survival and energy is involved in almost every facet of our life from the provision of medical services to our economic production. What is less well appreciated is the symbiotic relationship between water and energy – the distribution and purification of water often depends on energy, while energy production often requires the diversion and/or causes the contamination of water. Also less well understood is the crucial role played by energy and water in ensuring, not just human security, but also national and international security. Finding a way to promote our best interests in all three areas simultaneously creates some subtle challenges. These are best met by collaborative efforts across disciplines. We invite you to join us at the McKimmon Center in Raleigh on Thursday, March 21, to engage in a discussion of “Water, Energy, & Security: Colliding Imperatives.”
The event will feature a keynote address by Steven Solomon, author of "Water: The Epic Struggle, for Wealth, Power, and Civilization" and a panel discussion with Thomas Lippman of the Middle East Institute, Paul Faeth of the Center for Naval Analyses, Keith Schneider of Circle of Blue and David Schlobohm of NC State University.
