Agricultural systems

Agricultural intensification and climate change create a rapidly changing landscape with increasing competition for scarce water resources. Our work demonstrates how river basins evolve to shape water management in agricultural watersheds.

Transboundary basins

Of over 200 global transboundary river basins, less than half are formally governed by international treaty. Our research develops new approaches and datasets to support cooperative transboundary watershed governance, especially in South and Southeast Asia.

River deltas

River deltas are threatened by rising sea levels, increasing salinity, and a reduction in sediment imports. Our research demonstrates the failures of traditional engineering approaches to delta management and suggests new approaches to sustainably manage human-delta systems.
