UWIN – A Multi-Institutional Partnership Focused on Sustainable Urban Water Systems

IWP Research Seminar


Synopsis:

The Urban Water Innovation Network (UWIN) is a consortium of academic institutions and key partners across the U.S. focused on research, engagement and educational programs that address challenges threatening urban water systems.

Current pressures ranging from climate change, to population growth and associated land use change, to water quality degradation and aging infrastructure, demand sustainable technological, institutional, and management solutions that increase community resilience of their water systems and enhance preparedness for responding to water crises.  The conceptual framework upon which UWIN is based recognizes the importance of cross sector integration and is focused on co-benefit assessment that minimizes tradeoffs of potential solutions. This talk will provide an overview of UWIN, now in its second of five years, with particular focus on ongoing research, education, and engagement activities at the speaker’s institution, Arizona State University.
