Research • Policy • Education • Action

Achieving water sustainability requires innovative law, policy, and governance solutions. At the POLIS Water Sustainability Project, we develop cutting-edge research to improve freshwater decision-making and management. We share solutions with those working on the ground (and in the water), including communities, experts, four levels of government (local, Indigenous, provincial, federal), and non-governmental and Indigenous organizations. By combining practical expert research with community action, our team works to increase understanding of freshwater issues and to drive law, policy, and governance reform to generate change towards a sustainable freshwater future.
