On 20 October 2014, the Council launched its third publication, “Water, Energy, and the Arab Awakening,” with a panel discussion at the Celtic Manor Resort in Wales, the United Kingdom. We are pleased to share the digital version available for download at:
This book is the third in the Council’s “Global Agenda” series and the second book the Council has published in partnership with the United Nations University Institute of Water, Environment and Health (UNU-INWEH). This volume is primarily a collection of papers from the Council’s 2013 annual meeting in Bahrain, and we are deeply grateful to the Court of the Crown Prince of Bahrain, whose generous support made this publication possible.
October’s launch featured a panel discussion moderated by the Right Honourable the Baroness Margaret Jay, with seven of the book authors as well as IAC members H.E. Mr. Bertie Ahern and H.E. Dr. George Vassiliou. It was a fascinating discussion, which we captured on audio and have made available on YouTube at: http://youtu.be/A7Oybt1AUzY. I encourage you to have a listen and share the link with your network.
