NEW YORK -- Experts from across the globe will gather this week at Pace University's Manhattan campus to discuss the current state of water resources during the annual Pace Water Summit.

Entitled "Water Cooperation and Conflict: The Local and Global Challenge,” Pace University’s third summit on the world's water situation will draw experts from the public and private sectors, advocacy groups, industry and previous presidential administrations. Panel members will discuss the problems facing the world today and propose their solutions to the global and national water crises.

According to experts, more than 700 million people worldwide suffer from lack of access to potable water. Many water-starved parts of the world rely upon U.S. innovation and assistance, although American water issues increasingly resemble the global crisis. Transboundary conflicts, inequitable distribution, antiquated infrastructure and droughts have all become issues in recent years. Domestically, forty percent of American waterways are classified as substandard and lead-tainted drinking water has become a problem across the country.

"Water Cooperation and Conflict: The Local and Global Challenge" will be held Thursday, April 13, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. at Pace University's Schimmel Center for the Arts in Manhattan. Registration ranges from $10 to $35. For more information or to register, click here.
