water@leeds: at the heart of global water research

Meet the Researchers: water@leeds

Water is at the core of human survival, and recent decades have brought increased urgency to tackle the many water-related challenges facing the world; from limited access to safe water and sanitation, to increasing pressure on water resources and ecosystems, and the exacerbated risk of droughts and floods from climate change.

Here at the University of Leeds, water@leeds focuses on tackling these major water problems. Bringing together a community of more than 200 researchers in one of the largest interdisciplinary centres for water research in any university in the world, water@leeds encompass expertise from across the physical, biological, chemical, social and economic sciences as well as engineering and the arts.

Join us in March to hear about some of the Leeds research that is helping to understand and solve major global water issues.
