UCalgary, UN institute partner to form first UN University hub focused on water


The University of Calgary has partnered with the United Nations University Institute for Water, Environment and Health to become the world’s first United Nations University hub focused on water. The partnership will work to develop the understanding, solutions, and workforce needed to mitigate and adapt to climate change and help to address water, environmental, and health challenges. The hub will have four research areas: understanding changes in aquatic ecosystems, infectious diseases in a changing climate, environmental predictions for water sustainability, and resilience in Indigenous communities.
