Cultural Modeling of Water Resources in Afghanistan

KU geographers, geologists and archeologists are modeling cultural landscapes and water resources in Afghanistan in order to understand how to repair and restore damaged water systems. It also is funding analysis of water systems in North Africa and the development of new water sanitation and safe composting methods in Bolivia. Both projects are supported by, or in part, by the U.S. Army Research Laboratory and the U.S. Army Research Office. KU’s expertise in researching water has utility in the discourse of environmental security, which is growing in importance as climate change and resource scarcity pose threats to regional stability, particularly in Asia and Africa.
