Professors Katrina Charles and Rob Hope discuss how research can improve water security for millions of vulnerable people, and how the global REACH programme is making a real difference to people's lives through research-led solutions.


Floods, fires, droughts and pollution affect everyone with increasing frequency around the world. For the last decade, Oxford has worked with partners globally to improve water security to help millions of vulnerable people.

On World Water Day, we warmly invite you to join us for an open discussion with the lead scientists who have developed new partnerships, models and policies to make a real difference through the REACH programme led by the University of Oxford. 

The Fair Water? exhibition has been created by OUMNH, illustrating REACH’s work, to promote wider understanding how people, companies, governments and scientists can work together to improve water security for everyone.

Tickets are free but booking is essential.
