When Water Scarcity Leads To Conflict

Earth's most precious resource doesn't fire bullets or explode, but it is guarded, hoarded, and stolen in a way that ignites political tensions locally and internationally.  We'll travel to Sub Saharan and Pakistan to bring you the stories of those caught up in the struggle to secure clean water. We'll hear from unapologetic water thieves, reporters turned refugees, and rural residents whose way of life may be completely decimated because of the wording in an old international treaty. Also the voices of American officials, NGO's, and others.

Airing Tuesday at 9:00 a.m. during SON's week of hiatus.
