Securing humankind's vital resources
Climate change threatens safe and secure supplies of water and food all over the world. In response, Community Jameel and Massachusetts Institute of Technology co-founded the Abdul Latif Jameel Water and Food Systems Lab (J-WAFS) in 2014.
J-WAFS is an MIT-wide effort that fuels research, innovation, and cross-disciplinary collaborations focused on water and food systems to meet human needs. Through early-stage research grants, support for technology commercialisation, sponsored research management, student funding and mentorship, and events that convene local and global experts, J-WAFS leverages the world-class resources for which MIT is known.
