Research • Policy • Education • Action

The POLIS Water Sustainability Project is an action-based research group at the University of Victoria’s Centre for Global Studies. We develop cutting-edge research and share solutions, best practices, and opportunities for reform with those working on the ground (and in the water). This includes communities, experts, governments at all levels (local, Indigenous, provincial, federal), and non-governmental and Indigenous organizations. By combining practical research with community action, we demonstrate the powerful potential of new governance approaches and work to drive innovative law reform to generate change towards a sustainable and secure freshwater future.
