UEA Water Security Research Centre (WSRC)

The UEA Water Security Research Centre applies world-class natural and social science to address important theoretical, practical and policy challenges of managing water sustainably in a rapidly changing world.

The Centre draws upon the unique skills and experience of internationally-renowned researchers in the School of International Development and the School of Environmental Sciences to address key water security and related issues from the individual to the global level through inter-disciplinary research, teaching and capacity-building.

What we offer:

 

The Centre takes the view that although securing and managing water resources is of paramount importance to individuals, local communities, states and the international community, water security is not just about water. The hydrological cycle substantially affects, and is impacted by, other current major security issues. It makes little sense to consider water security independent of climate change, food security, energy security – and the international cooperation required to deliver regional, state and human security.

the thirst that is unquenchable?"
