About this Video

As the world’s population grows and technology advances, many things happen: resources grow more scarce, events are increasingly interconnected even when they’re thousands of miles apart, and groups of people are easier to organize across greater distances. Retired Brigadier General Russ Howard talks about how all of these trends coalesce around a key issue: Water. That most basic of human needs is driving events across the globe; watch his talk to learn how.

He is President of Howard’s Global Solutions, and an Adjunct Professor at the Middlebury Institute of International Studies.
