The ECI is currently developing its water research programme. Below are some of the key projects in this theme.
Flood Risk Management
The Flood Risk Management Consortium focuses on some of the more recently identified strategic research investigating the prediction and management of flood risk. It is the primary UK academic response to this challenge.
ECI component led by Jim Hall
iCOASST is a project that will help forecast what the UK's coastline will look like in the future, up to 100 years’ time.
CREDIBLE is a Consortium on Risk in the Environment: Diagnostics, Integration, Benchmarking, Learning and Elicitation.
The Oxford Martin Programme on Resource Stewardship works across the sciences, social sciences and humanities to radically rethink global resource stewardship. The programme aims to deliver a framework, accountable to future generations, that will create actionable input on critical global issues such as freshwater resources, land-use and atmosphere.
