Growth in China and the United States has generated tension between water and energy that is visible in both countries and is virtually certain to increase over the next decade. Despite evidence of water’s vital importance to energy development and global economic security, the energy-water “choke point” needs to be better understood by businesses, policymakers, and educators preparing students for success in the 21st century.
Jennifer Turner, director of the China Environment Forum at the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars, will highlight this often overlooked environmental challenge facing China and the United States and stimulate discussion on opportunities for global collaboration. Her remarks will be followed by a panel that will address the implications of these issues for businesses and K-12 education.
