Jeremy Schmidt discusses new book at World Water Day conference at the Vatican

(31 March 2017)

Dr Jeremy Schmidt was invited by the Vatican and the Club of Rome to the World Water Day celebrations this week in Rome.

The conference on world water values also coincides with the release of Dr Schmidt's new book, Water: Abundance, Scarcity, and Security in the Age of Humanity (NYU Press).

The global water news organisation and co-sponsor for the event, Circle of Blue, published a freely available podcast to coincide with the event that features a discussion with Dr Schmidt on his new book and its examination of the history of ideas that affect global water governance.

After the conference, Dr Schmidt will remain in Rome to participate with global experts in a focused workshop on strategies and next steps to build on the intersections of water with scientific, religious, social, and ethical norms.
