Research for water systems resilience
Social and natural systems are facing the consequences of widespread environmental change
Human interventions in the hydrological cycle are rapidly evolving throughout the world in response to changing societal needs and environmental stressors. Population growth and climate change, in particular, are driving competition for increasingly scarce and polluted water resources. The implications of these changes have wide-ranging consequences for water supply, food systems, and environmental sustainability.
We create knowledge to support resilient water management
Our research supports cooperative water resources management in water-stressed regions. We do this by leveraging a variety of data-driven methods to study interdependencies in complex human-water systems. We then use this knowledge to identify approaches to reduce environmental degradation and enhance resilience in water systems.
