The connections between access to water, gender, security, environment and human rights will be the subject of a talk by Dr. Peter H. Gleick on Thursday March 26th in the Rutgers University Libraries. Dr. Gleick is the president and co-founder of the Pacific Institute in Oakland, CA. The institute monitors the quality of the world's water supply and its effect on health, climate change, industrialization, and international relations. The work of the Pacific Institute has been cited by government officials and/or community activists in South Africa, India, the United Nations Global Compact, and the State of California. Dr. Gleick's talk is supported by a grant from the School of Arts and Sciences International Programs office and is part of the office's year long series of events to mark the 60th anniversary of the Declaration of Human Rights. The talk will be held in the Scholarly Communication Center, on the 4th floor of Alexander Library in New Brunswick, starting at 6:00 pm. In December Dr. Gleick spoke with National Public Radio's The Takeaway show about "What President-elect Obama needs to know about water."
