Shortages are especially likely in parts world already short on water, so political scientists expect will become even more intense. To track disputes worldwide, rchers at Oregon State University spent a decade building a rehensive database of international incidents—both aggressive ooperative—over shared water resources. They found that ries often begin disputes belligerently but ultimately reach ful agreements. Says Aaron Wolf, the geosciences professor eads the project, “For me the really interesting part is how even and Israelis, Indians and Pakistanis are able to resolve their ences and find a solution.” KATIE PEEK NERD BOX The map displays nearly 2,000 international incidents, collaboration and conflict alike, over shared river basins from 1990 to 2008. The areas of the circles in the sidebar [facing page] compare about 2,200 events— including another 200 disputes over resources other than shared rivers— from the same period. KEY 1–2 None The color of each international river basin shows the total number of incidents there, both aggressive and cooperative, from 1990 to 2008. Circle size indicates the number of hostile events in each basin. 1–3 4–15 16–40 41–126 127+ 3–6 7–15 16–45 46+ INCIDENTS BY INTENSITY The researchers graded each event in their database on a 15-point scale. CURRENT HOTSPOT In 2011, Ethiopia began building the Grand Renaissance Dam on the Blue Nile, a tributary that provides 60 percent of the Nile’s water. Without any basin-wide treaties in place, Egypt and Sudan are concerned about receiving enough water downriver. Ethiopia plans to complete the project in 2017. CURRENT HOTSPOT Later this year Turkey will complete the Ilisu Dam on the Tigris River, part of a national push to boost electrical capacity. Besides submerging the 12,000-year-old settlement of Hasankeyf, the dam may damage Iraq’s Mesopotamian Marshes by allowing them to get saltier. Germany, Austria, and Switzerland withdrew funding for the dam in 2009. CURRENT HOTSPOT In a channel of the Mekong two miles north of the Cambodian border, Laos intends to construct the Don Sahong Dam. The power project would affect fishing in Cambodia, Vietnam, and Thailand, and those countries are demanding veto power. 0 EVENTS Declaration of war 570 EVENTS Leaders express mild verbal support in talks or policy exchanges 245 EVENTS Nations agree to support projects like irrigation or river management 0 EVENTS Voluntary unification into a single country 9 EVENTS Hostile action like troop movement or water-supply disruption CURRENT HOTSPOT Tajikistan is planning the Rogun hydroelectric dam on a tributary of the Amu Dar’ya river. The dam would be the tallest in the world and help alleviate the country’s energy shortages. Uzbekistan, fearing irrigation shortfalls, has imposed tariffs and travel restrictions on its neighbor.
