What is the Water security and governance lab?

The Water Security and Governance Lab emerged from on going research initiatives on campus.  The lab began as the Water Security Initiative in July 2016. it was supported by the College of Geosciences  as part of the Institute for Sustainable Communities (IfSC) at Texas A&M University, a result of the university’s Environmental Grand Challenge Program.  IfSC is a university-level institute that reports to the Texas A&M University Office of the Provost.

We focus on the causes of water insecurity, consequences for society and human well being, and socially equitable solutions to increase the capacity of individuals and communities to flourish during these times of global environmental change.  Our goal is to build a robust community of practice and research at Texas A&M University and create space for collaboration and dialogue.
