LINCOLN, Nebraska, USA, May 22, 2019 – The Daugherty Water for Food Global Institute (DWFI) at the University of Nebraska (NU), along with more than 110 associated NU Faculty Fellows, are working on solutions to achieve water and food security around the world through research, education and communication. For the first time, visitors to the DWFI website can quickly view the many university-led research projects and papers related to this mission through an interactive map. The map draws from a database named “Unda,” the Latin word for “ripple” or “wave,” and includes work by DWFI, Faculty Fellows, the Nebraska Water Center, the Water Sciences Laboratory, and associated staff and scholars. High-level information about projects, including description, focus area, status, start and end dates, country, and people involved is available through the map.
“We are very excited to add this helpful feature to our website,” said Lacey Bodnar, research project manager and the database project leader. “It showcases the University of Nebraska’s leadership in research and practical problem solving, tackling complex challenges and delivering results to advance water and food security.”
The Unda database is located on the “Our Work” page of the DWFI website: https://waterforfood.nebraska.edu/our-work.
