Research and Collaboration

We forget that the water cycle and the life cycle are one.
— Jacques Cousteau

No solution to today’s water challenges can be solely technical, solely legal and administrative policy or solely water science based. There must be a broad understanding across academia that water solutions cannot succeed unless it works effectively, is based on good science, makes sense economically, can be implemented through strong institutions and addresses the needs and underlying values of the different communities and cultures served.

This website is one way that the IoES will highlight the best water research and technology across the disciplines at UCLA. We will highlight collaborations that currently are ongoing, and encourage faculty to use the Water Group to put together new collaborative research projects across disciplines.
