WAT works across various water-related sectors and management scales. It studies a range of possible future socioeconomic changes and technological innovations.
The program seeks to incorporate water science into assessment and planning studies at the nexus of water, food, energy, and environmental security. Its aim is to establish a critical mass of water knowledge through development of new modeling tools and data collection.
IIASA research programs have continually been active in water science since the Institute's inception in 1972. IIASA played a prominent role in various recent large integrated water projects: WATCH (Water and Global Change); SCENES (Scenarios for Europe and Neighbouring States).
A combination of climate change and water usage are responsible for the staggering drying of Lake Urmia, what was once the second largest salt lake in the world. More
