It has been a busy year for the Desert Research Institute's (DRI's) Center for International Water and Sustainability (CIWAS). Thanks to effective collaborative work with our partners , we have expanded our programs focused on building water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH) capacity and sustainability. We have also been actively pursuing new research opportunities, particularly around water resources management, water security, and climate change. All of these activities are central to the overall mission of CIWAS to provide technical support and action research to governments, nongovernmental organizations (NGOs), universities, and stakeholders across the developing world by identifying and solving problems related to human health and the management of environmental resources, especially water.
On behalf of the DRI/CIWAS team, I thank you for your interest and support of our work to improve lives. We look forward to new opportunities for collaboration and partnerships over the coming year.
