CEEP recommends water conservation to achieve long-term sustainability
Research at CEEP has demonstrated that water conservation facilitates the maintenance of the economy-environment-energy-and-equity balance. Led by Dr. Young-Doo Wang, CEEP’s Associate Director, researchers are finding ways to conserve water and improve water quality in order to ensure the viability of watersheds and the human communities which depend upon them. One key finding of the program is that water and energy are bound together in a deeply interconnected nexus. Sustainability initiatives concerning energy cannot ignore the far reaching water crisis experienced by the world. Analysis of the water-energy nexus in and beyond the U.S. is also underway at CEEP.
