How can we ensure safely managed water supplies and sanitation for all? How can we effectively conserve the world’s marine and freshwater resources? What role can water play in renewable energy generation? How can we understand and mitigate flooding and extreme weather events of increasing severity? How do we support the economic development of coastal communities while maintaining and protecting biodiversity?
The UCD Earth Institute’s multidisciplinary community of researchers are working to answer these questions.
Contact our Water theme leads Mary Kelly-Quinn (UCD School of Biology and Environmental Science) & Fiachra O'Loughlin (UCD School of Civil Engineering) or the Earth Institute team to find out more about our activities in this area.
