ZEF theme: Water Resources

Water Resources

Access to water which is sufficient in quantity and quality for domestic, agricultural, economic and cultural requirements is a sine qua non for development. Therefore, trans-disciplinary research on water in its physical, ecological, socio-economic, political, and legal contexts is integral to ZEF's research agenda. The broad objective of ZEF's water management research agenda is to arrive at integrated approaches - in partnership and close collaboration with local actors in the research areas.
