Water Management for Future Climate Scenarios

Wednesday, January 31, 2018 at 3:30pm to 5:00pm

E51-095 70 Memorial Drive, Cambridge

Water quality and water supply reliability are challenged by climate change in ways that affect livelihoods and ecosystems alike.  In fact, climate’s influence on water can already be seen through declining groundwater recharge; increased sedimentation and water contamination; intensified droughts, as well as many other indicators.  While examples of these challenges manifest at an increasing rate across the globe, demand for water rises as well.  Given the short- and long-term uncertainty and the regional-differences in ways climate affects water systems, what is to be done?  Join MIT's Abdul Latif Jameel World Water and Food Security Lab (J-WAFS) for a panel that features research by MIT graduate students and postdocs that addresses this challenging water management issue. 

Presenters include:
Sarah Fletcher, PhD candidate, Institute for Data, Systems, and Society, and 2017-2018 Rasikbhai L. Meswani Fellow for Water Solutions

Julian Koelbel, Postdoc, Sloan School of Management

Cristina Logg, MCP candidate in the Department of Urban Studies and Planning

Cindy Noe, MPA/MBA candidate at the Harvard Kennedy School of Government and the Sloan School of Management

Tyler Swingle, M.Arch candidate in the Department of Architecture

Panel moderated by Janelle Heslop, dual degree SM/MBA candidate in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering and the Sloan School of Management
