Title: From Sea to Sand: the Social, Political, and Environmental Consequences of the Dessicated Aral Sea Disaster
Author: Walton, Brett
Abstract: A half century of desert irrigation has caused the Aral Sea to shrink by 90 percent. Restoration of the sea is impossible and rehabilitation is blocked by political feuds. Meanwhile, disease incidence is rising and livelihoods are being lost. Come hear about why water management in Central Asia is so difficult.
