Our Work

Research principles

  • Ecosystem-based resilience: Understanding freshwater ecosystem structure and function in order to help build ecosystem-based resilience to human impacts including climate change
  • Ecosystem services: Maintaining the health of aquatic ecosystems in order that they continue to deliver services such as water provisioning, flood regulation and biodiversity support
  • Resource Protection: Protecting the quality of the resource through monitoring and risk assessment in order to maintain ecosystem integrity and public health
  • Sustainability: Working hand-in-hand with local communities, farmers and government to develop water management strategies that balance the needs of users with those of the environment and which help rural communities reduce their vulnerability to climate change
