Water, Peace and Security

The United Nations General Assembly hosted a session this week in New York entitled “Water, Peace and Security.” Among others, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Catherine Ashton, the foreign policy lead for the European Union, spoke.  The Skoll Global Threats Fund, which tackles water security as one of our areas of work, supports the U.S. Water Partnership, a private-public partnership launched by Secretary Clinton earlier this year that helped organize this UN event.  There’s a good summary statement of the key takeaways from the discussion by Maria Otero of the U.S. State Department that starts at 57 minutes in. This is followed by Secretary Clinton’s remarks.  You can watch the roundtable below.
