Download This unit is designed to help students answer the essential questions: who controls water in the world, and who should have the right to water? Throughout this inquiry, students will begin by learning the meaning of stakeholders, hydro-hegemon, water stress, and the difference between physical and economic water scarcity. Students will also explore the current, relevant case studies of the proposed damming of the Nile River and the impact of conflict and Turkish dam projects on the Tigris and Euphrates rivers. The lesson is intended for upper middle school and high school students and can be implemented in seven to ten class periods.
