Creating the tools to help sustainably manage and secure water resources on the Prairies

Water is life.

And water security - both quality and quantity - is one of the most critical issues facing our planet.

Call for Research Participants

Do you have an interest in water governance or do you work in water stewardship in Saskatchewan, Alberta or Manitoba? GIWS is looking for participants to take part in our latest Sociohydrology research project Facilitated Empathy for Water Security in the Saskatchewan River Basin. The project takes place over two years  and plans to capture cultural preferences, views about governance and social relations between stakeholders using various social science research tools. This will help in the creation of a more refined and actionable understanding of water security, which helps inform research at GIWS. 

The first step requires participants to take part in a survey. To register, click here. For more information about our Sociohydrology research program, click here.
