Solving conflict

"It's important to know why conflict is happening, what the role of water is, and what factors you can influence either as a policy maker in the respective region, or as an external partner, to solve the conflict. "

Susanne Schmeier, IHE Delft

Crucial data

"Data is fundamental to understanding where the risks are highest, what's driving these risks, and they suggest what possible solutions might be, in order to mitigate these risks. "

Charles Iceland, World Resources Institute

Regional impact

"WPS helps Malian decision-makers, civil society and local communities to understand the link between water, peace and security. This fosters the hope for peaceful, shared and sustainable management of natural resources in the Inner Niger Delta. "
