Morgan Shimabuku of the Pacific Institute to Present at Geospatial Analysis for International Development Symposium in Berkeley

On Thursday November 15th, Research Associate Morgan Shimabuku will present a poster at the Geospatial Analysis for International Development Symposium, hosted by the Center for Effective Global Action (CEGA) in Berkeley, California. The working title of her presentation is “Mapping Water-Related Conflicts Across the Globe.” It will cover recent efforts to identify and track water-related conflict through the Pacific Institute’s Water Conflict Chronology and explore strategies to reduce conflict, human displacement, migration, and food insecurity by highlighting key regions where conflicts involving water have arisen and identifying where solutions could be focused.

This second annual symposium will focus on geospatial research that addresses climate- and conflict-driven migration and the humanitarian response. This includes observation and modeling of migration and human settlement patterns (in response to climate or conflict stressors), as well as the design and evaluation of interventions for humanitarian crises, mass migration, and community resilience.

​The symposium will take place on Thursday, November 15th, at the he Center for Effective Global Action on the University of California, Berkeley campus at 207 Giannini Hall in Berkeley, CA 94720.
