Rising to the challenges

Changing climate and rainfall patterns, growing global populations, shifting land use patterns and increasing water consumption: the wide variety of experts operating across disciplines means water@leeds can rise to these challenges.

Our research is funded by a variety of funding bodies including research councils (NERC, EPSRC, ESRC), government (Defra, Environment Agency) and international sources (European Union, UNESCO), and through industrial sponsors such as Yorkshire Water.
