Experts say population growth, urbanization and environmental problems have strained the world's freshwater resources. Add a drought, and the competition for water leads to serious management challenges and volatile conflicts in developed and developing nations.
At a University of Nebraska-Lincoln lecture, a climatologist will discuss the measures that could help countries better handle droughts.
The Nebraska Lecture is scheduled for Oct. 25 and will be delivered by UNL climatologist Donald Wilhite. The title of his free lecture: "Managing Drought in a Changing Climate."
It is scheduled to begin at 3:30 p.m. in the Nebraska Union auditorium.
