Call for Papers on Water Security

Conference of Latin Americanist Geographers 

New Orleans, LA, 3-5 January 2017

Water security is a complex and contested goal-oriented concept.  Scholars and policy makers have reviewed and commented on increased interest in water security, underscoring the problem of definition as the term is applied in multiple conceptual domains across spatial scales –from the nation to the local community.  This session welcomes papers that address water security from diverse perspectives (e.g., geopolitical, humanitarian/human development, vulnerability & risk) to showcase current water security research in Latin America.  I strongly encourage graduate students and early career scholars to consider submitting an abstract.  My intention is to use this opportunity to build a network of water security researchers and scholars among the CLAG community. CLAG website:

Currently we have seven abstracts, and therefore, have room for a few more to fill two sessions.

Please submit an abstract to Dr. Wendy Jepson  ( by 1 Sept 2016.
