IIASA's Water Program 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).
Water resources are central to development and poverty alleviation. Yet decision makers face many challenges to ensuring their sustainable and equitable use. More
IIASA guest research scholar Paul Yillia has won the Outstanding Contribution Award for his work in water resources assessment and planning at this year’s African Utility Week Industry Awards in Cape Town, South Africa. More
