An innovative approach to address complex water problems is needed to address present and future needs of cities, agriculture, energy security, the environment and public health.

Water Diplomacy is an innovative and integrative approach to address complex water problems. At Tufts University, we educate the next generation of water diplomats to envision a different future for water, transforming their understanding of water as a fixed resource into a flexible and sustainably shared resource to create new avenues for negotiating and resolving water conflicts. Tufts University's Water Diplomacy | IGERT doctoral program seeks to educate reflective water professionals who will:
  • Think across boundaries
  • Integrate knowledge and action
  • Develop non-zero sum solutions
