Water security means making sure there is enough water of the right quality in the right place at the right time for people, farming, businesses and the environment.
Due to an expanding population – and increasing social, economic and cultural activities that place pressure on our water resources – water security has been identified as one of the biggest long-term dangers facing the world over the next decade – World Economic Forum.
With 180+ academics across four leading UK research institutions, the Water Security Alliance is the largest UK water research consortium – and one of the largest worldwide.
For tackling global water challenges, the Alliance is a platform for:
- Fostering multidisciplinary water research excellence.
- Sharing state-of-the-art infrastructure, facilities, equipment and training resources.
- Forging long-term collaborative relationships across multiple sectors and industries.
