Abdul Latif Jameel Water & Food Systems Lab

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.
