Director's Welcome

The future of water is changing at a global scale, with the effects felt nationally and locally. Increasing demand and scarcity, changing patterns of rainfall and evaporation, and growing recognition of the importance of cultural and environmental water are all key drivers in this change.

The Institute for Water Futures is dedicated to working with a wide range of partners to combine leading edge technology, advanced biophysical and social sciences, real-world applications and futures thinking for understanding long-term changes in freshwater and crafting innovative pathways for policy and practice.

Welcome to our Institute, and we warmly invite you to join us in this journey!
