Human life depends on the availability and quality of water to sustain our health, grow our food, power our homes with electricity, and stimulate our economies. However, due to overpopulation, increased demand for food, climate change and pollution, as much as two-thirds of the world’s citizens may face water-stressed conditions by 2025. Using the Nile River basin and our James River watershed as regional and local case studies, Nile Project founder Mina Girgis, faculty scholars, and community experts will discuss innovative approaches to collaboration around water issues.
The Nile Project performs at the Modlin Center on March 24.
