McMaster researchers part of new major national water research initiative

Funded by Canada First Research Excellence Fund and other partners, the $143-million Global Water Futures project will see senior McMaster researchers collaborating with their peers from the University of Saskatchewan (lead institution), University of Waterloo and Wilfrid Laurier University to transform how we study, manage and steward water. Focusing on the future of Canadian and global water resources, the project will draw on McMaster expertise in the areas of hydrology, climate change, the Great Lakes, flood forecasting, groundwater pollution, environmental contamination and public policy. Research teams from Geography & Earth Sciences and Biology, and the Faculties of Engineering and Social Sciences will be expanding our understanding in areas including climate change, natural disasters and water security.
