Drawing on a new book, Subnational Hydropolitics, this talk will explore the role that water has played in Chinese politics, its rapid economic growth, and its struggle to make its development sustainable. It will also discuss new and old tensions between China and its neighbors over shared water resources, and the role that conflict over water might play in China’s rise.
