About us

The Oxford Water Network is a multidisciplinary research community, harnessing the University of Oxford's diverse research to address the challenge of managing water in an increasingly water-stressed world. Oxford researchers work to address the key challenges of water security, exploring how to build resilience and tap into water adaptation potential amidst a looming climate crisis. This knowledge is used to inform policy and planning, as well as to develop instruments to improve practice in partnerships with government, research and business communities.

The Oxford Water Network forms part of the Oxford Networks for the Environment (ONE) which include networks on the converging challenges of climatefoodenergy and biodiversity. ONE showcases the University’s capacity to deliver world-leading, diverse and innovative environmental research and education.
