    Rachel Havrelock will explore water diplomacy in the Middle East. She will examine the era of the Oslo Peace Accords and the many joint Israeli-Palestinian organizations that arose subsequently. Some twenty-five years later, only one group, the trilateral Jordanian-Palestinian-Israeli NGOEcopeace Middle East, survives. Although confronting Climate Change and conflict at once presents considerable challenges, Ecopeace's unique mode of environmental peacebuilding establishes shared knowledge and awareness before moving participants toward collective planning andadvocacy. This talk covers Middle East water history and the innovations making new forms of water use and distribution possible. 217-206-6245
