What is it about?
Water issues are about people, and ecosystems, and financial realities. They’re about climate and energy and old habits dying hard. Since really thorny water issues don’t have a single cause, the only way to make progress is to integrate all of those other pieces—people, energy, climate, economics—into the solution. What’s needed is a neutral technology integrator, combining the best pieces and ideas regardless of where they come from. That’s where the GWI comes in.
“One of the issues that we think of as so important in the 21st century is the issue of water… The capacity of The Ohio State University to address compelling problems that we face in the world is unmatched. Its size and scope make it relevant across this country and around the world.”
