We've published a few pieces lately on China's coming water crisis, including Ken Pomeranz's "China's Water Woes" (2/12/09). Tomorrow (April 22 from 9-11 a.m. EST), the Wilson Center will host a roundtable on "Asia's Next Challenge -- Securing the Region's Water," for those interested in learning more. For those who aren't in the DC-area, the talks (by Saleem Ali, Geoff Dabelko, Suzanne DiMaggio) will be webcast live (so you can log onto the above link to watch).
Readers in the Boston area might be interested in this upcoming event on Chinese media at the Fairbank Center:
