Access to clean water is limited in many parts of the world. On top of economic and political challenges, climate change threatens to make it even more difficult for humans and other species to get enough water. Our water quality and security programs are dedicated to uniting experts from around the world and across diverse fields to identify and address water management, quality and insecurity.
We are focusing on current and future challenges. Our Nile Talk Forums address technical and geopolitical aspects of the Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam, a developing case study in international water management. Our UNESCO Chair on Sustainable Water Security coordinates universities and nongovernmental organizations to promote global water security and sustainability. And our water quality experts conduct esential work to keep our waters clean and potable. We work across local waterways, like Biscayne Bay, as well as around the world in rivers spanning the Amazonian Basin and West Africa. With extensive expertise in biogeochemical cycling and hydrogeology, we also inform water managers and decision makers about effective water management strategies, including for America's Everglades.
