Water And Violence: Resources And Infrastructure Attacks Analyzed

EDINBURGH, Scotland

Strategic Foresight Group (SFG), an India-based international think-tank engaged in crafting new policy concepts that enable decision makers to prepare for a future in uncertain times, has released a monthly Bulletin which covers attacks on water infrastructure in different parts of the world.

OOSKAnews will share these informative Bulletins with our readers, starting with these links to 2019’s first reports under the SFG program:

Yemen

The Global High-Level Panel on Water and Peace has called for the protection of water resources and infrastructure from violent conflicts and terrorist acts.

In “Water and Vioence: Yemen” Strategic Foresight Group examines the issue of protecting water in Yemen.

Ukraine

Presidential and Parliamentary elections in Ukraine this year offer an opportunity of a possible breakthrough in the Donbass conflict. If this window of opportunity is not used wisely, the situation can deteriorate further. Away from media headlines, one of the tragic consequences of the conflict has been the risk to water facilities in Donetsk and Luhansk, especially the treatment plants near the line of contact and the adjoining stocks of chlorine. Despite 3 Minsk agreements, shelling on these assets has not declined and poses a potentially grave risk.

Strategic Foresight Group’s “Water and Violence: Ukraine” examines the prospects of securing critical water infrastructure in Donbass? What can be done by the relevant actors and the international community?
