DWFI works with more than 110 associated University of Nebraska Faculty Fellows to achieve water and food security around the world through research, education and communication. Visitors to the DWFI website can quickly view the many university-led research projects and papers related to the institute’s mission through a new interactive map.
The map draws from a database named UNDA, the Latin word for “ripple” or “wave,” and includes work by DWFI, Faculty Fellows, NWC, WSL and associated staff and scholars. Through the map, high-level information is available about projects, including description, focus area, status, start and end dates, country and people involved.
“We are very excited to add this helpful feature to our website,” said Lacey Bodnar, DWFI 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.”
