The Water's Edge

Wheeler, William - dispatches (1)
Winner: The Climate Change Negotiations Award
GOOD Magazine (2009-08-01)

A report on the impact of climate change on the glacier-fed Indus River and the rising geopolitical tensions between India and Pakistan. Both countries depend on the river to generate hydropower and, in Pakistan's case, as a primary water source for agricultural irrigation. It is part of a series of print, broadcast, and multimedia reporting sponsored by the Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting on which, Anna-Katarina Gravgaard, and Bill Wheeler are working. The project looks at water distribution and the impacts of climate change on hydrology from the Himalayan glaciers of Nepal to India, Pakistan and Bangladesh. The Indus River offers us a case study in the diplomacy needed to counter climate-induced destabilization. “The Water’s Edge,” first appeared in GOOD Magazine, and was subsequently republished by The Quietus and The Caravan magazines.
