The Zuckerberg Institute for Water Research (ZIWR)

The Zuckerberg Institute for Water Research (ZIWR) unites under one roof all aspects of science and technology relating to water resources — desalination, water engineering, environmental hydrology, hydrogeology, hydrobiology, hydrochemistry, and water resource economics and management.
