A combination of climate change, excessive construction of dams, and poor water management threatens the Hamouns, which have provided a livelihood for the peoples of the region for 5000 years. Panelists will discuss the crisis and suggest solutions that can benefit Iranians, Afghans, and the international community.

Please join the Atlantic Council’s Future of Iran Initiative for the US premiere of "Once Hamoun," a documentary on Iran's disappearing Hamoun wetlands, and the launch of a new report on Iran-Afghan water disputes.
