On February 19, Geoffrey Dabelko gave a presentation titled "Water Wars or Water Peace?" at a discussion forum on Water and Security in the Developing World, sponsored by International Resources Group (IRG), an international professional services firm.

Dr. Charles Lawson of the Bureau of Near Eastern Affairs, U.S. Department of State, spoke about "Water Issues in the Middle East Peace Process," followed by Dr. Eugene Stakhiv of the US Army Corps of Engineers on "A Strategic Plan for Iraq's Water Resources Management."
