Climate change is significantly impacting Canada’s water resources. From melting permafrost, to more pervasive algal blooms, to increased flooding, these impacts are only expected to increase in the future. Three professors from the University of Waterloo’s Water Institute have been awarded significant grants to develop new, innovative technologies and to deliver new management approaches to enhance the resilience and adaptive capacity of Canada’s water resources in the face of climate change.

Nandita Basu from the Faculties of Science and Engineering, Claude Duguay from the Faculty of Environment, and Merrin Macrae from the Faculty of Environment are the principal investigators on three of the 11 projects receiving funding from the Global Water Futures initiative – the largest university-led water research program ever funded worldwide. A total of 40 Water Institute members from 10 different departments will contribute to the 11 projects.
