in Global Engineering & Resilience
The University of Colorado Boulder Mortenson Center in Global Engineering & Resilience and the Colorado State University Colorado Water Center recently prepared and edited a report outlining how a variety of emerging technologies can help water managers, landowners and policymakers improve western water management in the face of severe, ongoing drought.
Using satellite and cellular connected sensors we are presently monitoring the water supplies of over a million people in arid Kenya and Ethiopia, expanding to over five million in 2018 and linking this data to regional water service providers and national policy makers in an effort to improve water services and drought resilience.
A publication spearheaded by the Mortenson Center in Global Engineering & Resilience seeks to create better alignment among academic programs and sector needs when it comes to training engineers in global development. Over 100 participants from universities, donors, government agencies and industry partners established a comprehensive global engineering body of knowledge published in Development Engineering.
Despite efforts to improve community resilience to disasters, over the past 25 years the number and economic impact of natural disasters has increased each year. At the same time, little research has been done to evaluate the pre-disaster conditions that enable community recovery afterwards.
Associate Professor Amy Javernick-Will and her students focus on this increasingly vital aspect of community development.
