U of R receives new funds, in-kind donations to support water security research

The University of Regina has received $2.5M in federal funding and approximately $1M in in-kind contributions to support ongoing research on protecting Saskatchewan’s water resources. The project, which is led by Canada Research Chair for Climate Change, Energy, and Sustainability Dr Margot Hurlbert, will inform policy decisions on water security in the face of potential threats caused by climate change’s future impacts, such as drought, flooding, and wildfires. The research will take place in contact with local and government stakeholders, and also involves an international partnership with Argentina, Chile, and Uruguay. “We’re interested in all dimensions of climate change, and the impact on water and how people are going to adapt,” said Hurlbert.
