Arizona State University will lead a partnership to tackle future water needs.

A $40 million boost from the state will help the Arizona Water Innovation Initiative to study and develop new water solutions and technologies.

Dave White is with ASU’s Global Institute of Sustainability and Innovation.

“So, the long-term goal of the Arizona Water Innovation Initiative is simple, and that is to ensure water resilience for the state of Arizona in the face of increasing levels of challenge related to drought and the impacts of climate change," he said.

The initiative will be led by ASU’s Julie Ann Wrigley Global Futures Laboratory in partnership with the Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering.
