Solutions to the effects of global warming on water management from a political point of view...proposed by
Emma, Manon & Victoire present "Nile Conflicts".
Situated in one of the strongest zones of tensions of the planet, the basin of the Nile is shared by 10 countries. According to the World Bank, the population of the basin could rise from 150 million currently to 300 million within twenty five years, still increasing the pressure on the invaluable resources of the river. There could be a war if we do nothing, so, Egypt and the nine other countries have gathered. The only solution that they have chosen is to collaborate. Maybe, we can suggest that the water issue can be controlled by the UNO. Water would then become a international good and never a national good.
Gauthier, Marc-Antoine & Pauline present "There abelongsre already disputes between countries over water. "
Due to its will to finish the development of the Tiger and the Euphrates, Turkey is in disagreement with its Syrian and Iraqi neighbours who see in its works a big risk for their water resources. After the conflicts for the oil, the conflicts for the blue gold?
The positions are firm and nobody is able to say to whom the water belongs.
" They have the oil, us the water " Turks are not accepted by its neighbours. More and more, Turkey wants to appear as the geopolitical centre of the region .
We propose as solutions that the water is shared between both countries. That they find a means of agreement, because there is widely enough water in a river for two countries.
