About Water Policy and Governance Group (WPGG)

The Water Policy and Governance Group (WPGG) is a multi-university, collaborative research team based at the University of Waterloo. Our focus is water governance and water policy, emphasizing Canadian experiences. Major themes in our research program include collaborative water governance, water security, source water protection, water allocation, and adaptation to climate change. We carry out practical, policy-relevant research that contributes solutions to these problems.

Our success is grounded in our network of researchers and partners across Canada and around the world. Graduate training is a central part of our mission. We accomplish our goals in large part because of our excellent graduate students, post-doctoral fellows and research associates.

We are grateful to the Faculty of Environment, University of Waterloo, for providing the WPGG with dedicated research space and administrative support.
