Submit your proposals by 15 July for working groups to develop the research programme of this global project, which focuses on solving the world's water problems.

The Sustainable Water Future Programme, or Water Future, a global research project of Future Earth, has announced a call for proposals to form working groups. These groups will help to develop the research programme of Water Future in several key areas. They include water, sanitation and health; freshwater systems and deltas; and sustainability in the Water-Energy-Food Nexus. In its announcement, Water Future writes:

Managing freshwater in the planetary water cycle has become a key challenge for global environmental sustainability. Water Future addresses this challenge by providing the knowledge and support to understand the state of global water and to develop potential policy solutions, including co-designing improved, evidence-based solutions that support sustainable development trajectories. The Water Future Programme will provide the mechanisms and frameworks that facilitate greater cooperation and collaboration across academia, industry, and government at the local, national and global scale.

Water Future is looking for working groups that include researchers from around the world and across disciplines, including the natural and social sciences, and with experience in law, governance, economics and technology. The deadline for working group prosopsals is 15 July.
