Water Overview

Water scarcity is a central challenge of the twenty-first century. Changes in local climates, along with growing pressure on the water-energy-food nexus, are making efficient and forward-looking water management strategies a basic necessity for many companies. While water poses many operational risks, it also presents a wide plane of opportunities for innovation. The Center manages a number of programs and initiatives at this intersection.
