Our research under this theme focuses on the ways water use in agriculture impacts human health and the environment. Our approach
is based on agro-ecosystem management—where maintaining the sustainability of the ecosystem means safeguarding the health of the people who rely on it and the wealth of natural resources it contains.

The goals of this work are: to put health & environmental issues on the water management agenda and to create tools to better address the health & environmental aspects of water in agriculture.
