INRS, FQM partner to create Municipal Chair in Sustainable Water Management

The Institut national de la recherche scientifique (INRS) and the Fédération québécoise des municipalités (FQM) have partnered to advance sustainable water management solutions within the context of climate change. The partners have created the creation of the Municipal Chair in Sustainable Water Management, which is supported by FQM and headed by INRS professor Sophie Duchesne, an expert in hydrology and urban infrastructure. The chair will focus on topics such as the sustainability and efficiency of infrastructure, the sustainability of drinking water sources, and flood risk reduction. Duchesne said that this partnership represents a “springboard for building resilient communities that are better equipped to face these challenges.”
