Quotes

"Then you might cross the Nile on the back of a camel" the former head of Egypt's National Water Research Centre said at the time, in what were highly contested claims
...Dr Dawson says that unequal access and distribution lie at the root of global resource scarcity. Moreover, "While resource shortages have indeed sparked international clashes, there is much evidence to suggest that collaboration, rather than conflict, can go a long way to address perceived resource scarcity. Resource abundant nations like New Zealand are well-positioned to make a valuable contribution to this debate."

...Further, in its citation, the Stockholm Water Prize Committee states that Briscoe "has combined world-class research with policy implementation and practice to improve the development and management of water resources as well as access to safe drinking water and sanitation."
