Ghana's initiative to monitor and report marine plastic pollution using data generated by the public represents a milestone in citizen science.
Water is a finite resource, and you probably consume more than you think. Here are the basics you need to know for reducing your water footprint.
Extreme weather conditions such as drought and heavy rain are becoming more frequent and are likely to increase even more in the future — but what is the best way to deal with them?
Researchers at Cornell University have developed nanoscale sensors that help breeders select water-efficient crops, enhancing their resilience against droughts caused by climate change.
Forecasts have been pointing out for years that water scarcity will become a problem. Here's one start-up's smart solution.
Can you have hydro storage without water? A British start-up is looking to open up the potential of pumped hydro renewable energy storage.
“Water, water everywhere, but not a drop to drink” — water scarcity doesn’t always mean a lack of water. Sometimes, it just needs to be cleaned.
Much of the world is wracked by water scarcity. Can high tech nano-engineering provide surprisingly simple and cheap solutions?
Many innovative designs have experimented with producing clean water from contaminated or salt water. A new approach takes inspiration from mangrove trees.
