Perspective – Interstate Dam Disputes Threaten Global Security

share this

Interstate dam disputes pose a serious threat to global security and American interests. When states build dams on transboundary rivers, upstream of borders, they can reap the benefits while shifting costs onto downstream states. While these dams provide benefits to upstream states, they can deplete and degrade the water flowing downstream. When a downstream state already faces water shortages, these decreases in water quantity and quality can be devastating. Water shortages often spark social and political unrest, contributing to conflict within and between states.
