The Peace Production is back after the Christmas break. This time I'm joined by Social Media Correspondent Sepa Katia to explore the causes and effects of the recent US assassination of a top Iranian general.

Our 10th episode focuses on a recent report from our policy analysis team. I'm joined by Lead Analyst Arthur Jamo to discuss the planned Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam and the possible implications this would have on down stream countries such as Sudan and Egypt. Population growth and climate change are placing traditional water uses under increasing strain. The report makes a series of recommendations to help ensure equitable water use across the delta and Arthur and I delve into some of these to understand what is necessary to move the region forward. Music by Ketsa and Zagi.

Founder of the OWP Matthew Savoy joins me on this episode to discuss the possibility of Canada's western provinces declaring independence.

We consider whether this movement has any likelihood of success and look at the potential implications of a divided Canada. Music provided by Ketsa and Zagi.
On this episode, we look at the recent protests in Iran in response to a reduction in fuel subsidies and consider how the increasingly maligned state can move forward and improve the lives of its people.

Thanks to Ketsa and Zagi for providing the music used in this show.
