By blending expertise in Environmental, Engineering, Health, Socio-economic, Cultural and Business-related aspects of water research, we address key challenges for a changing world.
Key areas include:
Adaptation and resilience - science for a changing environment: Freshwater systems are among the most endangered habitats in the world due to development, pollution and climate change.
Water security: too much, too little, too dirty: The global population faces significant water security threats related to: water supply, water pollution, wastewater removal, sanitation and associated ill health and the socio-economic impacts of droughts and floods.
Research that matters - local solutions, global context: Our research is essential to sustainably manage the supply and use of water, provide a healthy environment and enhance resilience of ecosystems and people to water-related risks in a changing world (e.g. more extreme droughts and floods).
