GWSC 2022-2023 FY Department of Defense Funding Announcement

The Global Water Security is proud to announce $3.7 million in funding from the Department of Defense as part of the 2022-23 fiscal year federal budget. With guidance on priority water security needs, GWSC will provide research and analysis support on water and environmental issues, including drought, water scarcity, and other natural resource limitations that could potentially pose national security threats.

We are excited about this work, which builds on our current efforts, and want to offer hearty thanks to Senator Richard Shelby and all our colleagues at The University of Alabama for their support throughout this process, as well as our friends at PDC Global at the University of Hawaii for their ongoing partnership.
