We are hosting a forum on water research at OSU to form connections and facilitate multi-disciplinary team projects. We are seeking to build a research community which will draw together multiple perspectives on issues pertaining to water resources, and the role of water in human societies.  The forum will familiarize you with current research interests at OSU in departments such as Anthropology, Geodetic Engineering, and many others, and will entail a facilitated discussion session in order to spark projects and identify avenues for support and funding. We are currently seeking an exciting keynote, as well, and could use your input

The whole program will take place from 9am to 3pm on Friday February 8, 2019. Research Commons (#340, Colloquia space), 3rd floor, 18th Avenue Library 175 W. 18th Avenue Columbus, OH 43210 We will provide lunch to those who register.

Please begin considering the following question to spark creative thinking at the forum:

  • What if the Middle East had the capacity to solve the global water crisis?
We are interested in tapping into local funds of knowledge around the world to provide models and solutions grounded in local culture.  You are welcome to share insights from other local contexts, as well. In the past we have looked at local efforts to prevent water resource crisis in the Syria, Turkey border region, as well as Iraq. For more information on our project, Global Water Contexts: Local/Global Dimensions of Water Protection, please check out our web site
 
We would like to thank our partners: the Discovery Themes, the Global Water Institute, the Office of Research, the Mershon Center for International Security Studies, International Programs in Agriculture, and the Middle East Studies Library.
 

Please register and join us in conversations about OSU's role in solving the global water crisis.
