Global Policy Challenges Exemplified by Inland Seas

UPPP Professor David Feldman, whose research includes water conflicts and the demise of inland seas, presented at the Dead Sea Research Institute's second global scientific summit, "Life in Extreme Conditions – A Lesson from Nature," held in March 2019 at Tel Aviv University. 

Feldman's talk was cited in a Forbes article on April 18, 2019, "Can the Dead Sea be the Key to Global Survival?" and "offers two use cases where both the Dead Sea and the Salton Sea (in California), which, if depleted, would have grave economic, ecological and political impacts locally and globally."

"Depletion, degradation, diversion – the death and life of inland seas as global policy challenge." (Video from Feldmans' conference session)
