Percolate: The Global Water Grab

Percolate: The Global Water Grab

May 28th, 2013 at 6:00pm CDT

Wall Street banks and elitist multibillionaires are buying up water all over the world at an unprecedented pace—even in the United States. With water insecurity increasing globally, what does this mean for our communities and farmers?

Join IATP’s international water expert Shiney Varghese for a look at how the current water governance regime privileges profit over people, communities and ecosystems. We’ll also discuss the importance of new strategies to advocate for the right to water and steps you can take to understand and reduce your water footprint.

Percolate is an opportunity, every other month, to join IATP in discussions about food, farming and trade. This isn’t just another lecture—come ready to participate!
