Water availability and quality are rapidly changing due to both local and global climate changes and other 21st century mega-trends. To address these disruptions to our current civilizations,it is necessary to generate mitigation and adaptation strategies to the projected changes. Creating innovative system-based water and sanitation solutions is imperative to build a sustainable and resilient scenario. In this talk, Dr. Garcia-Becerra presents her work on the development of municipal water reuse technologies, from basic research in the lab, development of nature-based solutions, to trans-disciplinary fieldwork with communities. She will discuss her studies in understanding the bio degradation of micro-pollutants in wastewater. She will also present her research on strategic socio-technological transformations needed to create communities with sustainable and resilient circular water metabolisms.
The Natural Resources & Environmental Studies Institute (NRESi) at UNBC hosts a weekly lecture series at the Prince George campus. Anyone from the university or wider community with interest in the topic area is welcome to attend. Presentations are also made available to remote participants through Zoom Webinar.
