Global Water Futures: Anticipation and Innovation

Water is essential for life and producing food, energy, minerals, and industrial goods. As planetary populations grow and a changing climate triggers floods, droughts, and other environmental extremes, access to clean water sources becomes increasingly competitive. Inadequate infrastructures, poor resource allocation, and outdated ecological restoration principles compound an already prescient problem. 

What are the technological innovations, financing mechanisms, policy instruments, and field implementation strategies needed to develop and design a better future? Can a Global Water Collaboratory help catalyze this process?

Join us on World Water Day to launch the Global Futures Water Institute. The Water Institute is a new international center of excellence for scholarship and action designed to predict and address water challenges from community to international scale. Drawing from existing academic capacity across ASU, the Water Institute will develop educational, research, and communication projects that benefit Arizona, the region, the national, and the global community.
