Abstract

This article evaluates the political theory that heightened fresh water scarcity is a root cause of war; a concern that has risen in prominence with climate change. Whilst water insecurity is indeed likely to become more acute, the article, nevertheless, argues that there is no compelling evidence for ‘water wars’ and even hope to imagine that this might prove a spur for more cooperation rather than conflict.
