McMaster experts join major Canadian initiative on the future of the world’s water
A major national research initiative on the future of Canadian and global water resources features leading McMaster researchers from several disciplines.
Water research is a particular area of expertise for McMaster, which has strength in a wide range of research fields, including hydrology, climate change, the Great Lakes, flood forecasting, groundwater pollution, environmental contamination and public policy. The recently formed McMaster Water Network works to bridge research and policy both within the university and externally with other researchers, practitioners, policy makers, industry and communities.
The Global Water Futures project, announced today, will see senior McMaster researchers working in partnership with colleagues from across Canada in a $143-million program led by the University of Saskatchewan, and also including University of Waterloo and Wilfrid Laurier University.
