Breaking boundaries in water research


In early-May, Water Institute Managing Director Kevin Boehmer travelled to Indonesia to share Water Institute experience with the Bogor Agricultural University (IPB University) in Bogor, Indonesia. IPB is a lead University of Waterloo partner in the Flood Impacts, Carbon Pricing and Ecosystem Sustainability (FINCAPES) project. FINCAPES is a 51/2 year, $15M project funded by Global Affairs Canada to improve Indonesia’s economic and environmental resilience to the impacts of climate change and biodiversity loss in an inclusive, gender-responsive manner.
