What is the Global Water Center?
The University of Nevada, Reno's Global Water Center (GWC) is a response to societal demands for creative, integrative approaches in solving complex issues related to water resources. The Center's mission is to translate science into actionable solutions accessible to stakeholders; develop a multidisciplinary, cooperative effort to solve water issues; and create novel, "high tech" tools (drones and models) to predict future conditions of water resources.
The Global Water Center trains up-and-coming researchers to tackle 21st-century water issues and provides a collaborative space and structure for experts currently infield. Projects range from climate change to invasive species, dams to drought, pollution to pathogens and well beyond.
