About the King's Water Activity Hub
King’s Water is a centre of research expertise on water, environment and development spanning social and physical sciences
King's Water examines the following key themes:
- Water and food supply chains
- Water infrastructure and institutions of water allocation and access
- Conflict, cooperation and water security
- Flood risk management
- Aquatic science, ecotoxicology and restoration of river and estuarine ecosystems
These key themes allow exploration of water governance challenges from global to local scales. We are particularly engaged in basic and applied scientific research on river and estuary restoration and management, socio-political analysis of water interactions, and innovation in methods and tools related to remote sensing, hydrological policy support systems and ecotoxicology.
The scope of research in Kings Water is truly global, ranging from the UK and Europe to Sub-Saharan Africa, Central America, South and central Asia and North America. Group members have received research grants from NERC, ESRC, DFID, IDRC, CDKN, British Academy and actively engage with collaborative research agendas in groundwater quality, urban ecohydrology and flood hazard vulnerability analysis.
Collaborations are pursued externally by working in partnership with other research training institutes (UNESCO-IHE, River Restoration Centre), with government agencies (DEFRA, EA) NGOs (WWF, Practical Action, WaterAid) and with independent trusts (The Wandle Trust, Thames 21).
