J-WAFS: Securing Humankind's Vital Resources


Dedicated to working Institute-wide to improve the productivity, accessibility, and sustainability of the world's water and food systems, the Abdul Latif Jameel Water and Food Systems Lab (J-WAFS) coordinates the efforts of MIT's faculty, labs, and centers to work towards solutions for water and food security that are environmentally benign and energy-efficient. J-WAFS supports technology innovation and basic research activities by motivating, accelerating, and coordinating research in water and food being conducted at MIT, in particular by stimulating interdisciplinary research.
