  4. Fukin Valley Documentary & Palestinian Water Authority

    Wadi Fukin is a Palestinian farming village in The Fukin Valley. In some ways, The Fukin Valley presents a hopeful vision for how water might actually help Israelis and Palestinians learn to live together cooperatively. But even here, water issues threaten the region’s future and provide an ever-present reminder of the conflicts of the past.

    Martin Sherman was a ministerial advisor in the government of Yitzhak Shamir in the early 1990s. He also served for seven years in a variety of roles related to national defense. He now teaches political science at Tel Aviv University and he was in Jerusalem.

    Launching this episode, we travel to Cuba - a country that has over the past 10 years become of increasing interest to those around the world interested in more ecological models of producing food.

    Contrary to the more voluntary means through which some North Americans have adopted and supported more energy efficient and ecological food choices, in 1989, Cubans had little choice. As a result of the Soviet collapse, Cubans were plunged into a situation whereby conventional models of farming had to be abandoned for more organic models. …
