The Global Water Institute integrates research, education, and extension to tackle water resource issues with global applications. To do this, we work with our partners – communities, NGOs, governments, companies, foundations, and other universities – to identify a specific local need. We collaborate to develop project activities, bring together the right people, organizations, and resources to make the project a reality, and then help shepherd the project to completion.
Since water is integral to all life, our work crosses many disciplines. The projects shown below include work on secure water access, climate resilient agriculture, and governance of water systems. Other ongoing activities expand student engagement in water issues, help to improve the ability of local water resource managers to sustainably manage groundwater resources as well as help to identify ideal locations to site new water infrastructure.
