climate, food & waterWorking Group Charge

As the world population grows and geopolitical powers shift, global challenges emerge for our planet to maintain it as an inhabitable place for all. These challenges encompass both societal (through migration, economic disparity, and availability of water, natural resources, health care, data security) and natural order (through depletion of non-renewable resources, food waste, climate change). This theme lies at the junction of society, natural resources, and our changing ecosystem. Tufts has expertise in several sub-categories related to this theme.
