CAPT Gusentine has had a storied military career leading Special Operations teams in dynamic and challenging circumstances worldwide. Gus served in over 30 countries working closely with senior foreign officials, U.S. Ambassadors, and the U.S. Interagency. He served on the Chief of Naval Operation’s Strategic Studies Group and led a cyber resilience team on the Joint Staff.  He closed out his 28-year Navy career in 2014. He now provides assessment, design, and development expertise to government, business, and academia. He teaches strategy and leadership to foreign military officers, government officials, and diplomats and is researching the systemic implications of global freshwater scarcity.

What parts of the world are especially vulnerable to conflict based on adequate
clean water issues?
Are there water issues underlying the terrorism and war in Syria and other nearby conflicts?
What is being done to abate the issue of clean water scarcity?
