The University of Saskatchewan’s Global Institute for Water Security and the Indian Institute of Science (IISc) have agreed to a five-year partnership on joint research, training, and academic exchanges related to water security, climate science and policy issues. “This is a very exciting research collaboration since both our countries are facing significant water security and climate change challenges,” said USask President Peter Stoicheff. “A key global need is to better understand glacier decline, snowmelt and groundwater movement—research that is critical to sustainable water supplies and builds upon research strengths both in the Canadian Rockies and the Himalayan regions.”
