The Water Security and Governance Lab seeks to improve society’s long-term water challenges. Our research targets key threats to water security, including poverty, climate change, governance and social marginalization, to better understand the best ways forward to address critical water security challenges in the coming years.
The scope of the Lab’s activities is global as we recognize the important advances in water sustainability and policy development that originate in diverse environmental contexts and regions. Consequently, the research portfolio examines water insecurity and the goal of sustainable and socially equitable water policy and interventions through the robust evaluation of central water security problems. We pay explicit attention to the development of novel pathways and partnerships to translate research outcomes into meaningful and useful products for stakeholders, communities, and decision-makers.
