Transdisciplinary Thematic Areas of the Future Water Institute
South Africa is a water-scarce, development-oriented country with inefficient resource use. Four themes address the challenges this reality creates.
Research projects may have a main home in one of these thematic areas, but the nature of transdisciplinary work means that the projects, and the researchers within them interacts with all thematic areas, and research can be applied across the themes. These themes can be thought of as lenses through which a complex problem is addressed, which is needed to meaningfully set boundaries to address critical questions.
