Environmental and social policy


Freshwater systems have a unique role in supporting all life on earth as well as the additional benefits and services that are gained from its use economically and socially, that distinguishes freshwater systems from all other natural resources. The development of effective water policies often involves the understanding of economic, ecological, environmental, and political considerations and the collaboration between experts in these divergent fields. Our researchers work to develop understanding within many of these individual facets through ecological and environmental knowledge and social awareness and impacts, enhanced by collaborations with the Centre for the Study of the Inland and Centre for Future Landscapes.
