The Herbert C. Kelman Seminar on International Conflict Analysis and Resolution presents a talk with Bruno Verdini, MIT
Dangerous droughts, storms, and fires are becoming increasingly ubiquitous on our planet. These disasters amplify the intensity of the conflicts our communities are called on to address. The proactive mindset, agile planning, and reciprocal partnership that can bring forth robust solutions, amidst such a degree of environmental and social complexity, tend not to make it to the front page. Yet, behind the scenes, there continue to be bold stakeholders, working across political and economic divides, and practicing effective water and energy diplomacy with tangible impacts. Using time-tested examples of the Colorado River and the Gulf of Mexico as springboards, this interactive presentation and conversation will emphasize negotiation strategies and behaviors proven to meaningfully assist in turning the tide wherever applied.
