About the WATEF Network

Water sustainability, alongside climate change, is at the forefront of global concerns. The Watef Network is a novel initiative proposed to take an interdisciplinary approach to solving problems of unsustainable water consumption in the built environment.

The network provides a forum to collaboratively explore the supply, treatment, distribution, risk monitoring, improved efficiency and conservation of water within the built environment. It also investigates the challenges to improving the adaptive capacity of building users, providers and professionals and consequently facilitate long-term, adaptable water efficiency through behaviour change and the use of technology.

The network aims to:
  • Promote independent, multi-disciplinary water efficiency research within the academic community
  • Transfer knowledge between academia, policy makers and regulators, third sector organisations and the building and water industries
  • Contribute to the evidence base for water efficiency and resilience by building on existing knowledge developed by the water industry, government and delivery bodies and academia

Activities include:

  • Organising events; meetings, workshops, master classes and conferences to inspire water efficiency research and transfer knowledge
  • Communicating research findings, applications and implications, collaborative Network working papers, journal and conference articles etc.
