Description:

Water governance is an important mechanism that protects water resources around the world. It builds on traditional models of governance and can be used not only to protect water supplies, but also to identify mechanisms of failure when water resources are in jeopardy, such as when demand may outpace supply. This talk will address water resource-related responsibilities at different levels of government across Canada.

Dr. Pascale Champagne is the Canada Research Chair in Bioresource Engineering and a Professor in the Department of Civil Engineering at Queen’s. She is also the Director of the Beaty Water Research Centre, which brings together faculty from across disciplines to collaborate on research into water-related issues. Dr. Champagne’s research focuses on the development of alternate water and waste management strategies and environmentally sustainable approaches. She has collaborated widely to develop new integrated bioresource management practices, to introduce alternate aqueous and solid waste management approaches, and to create unique opportunities for the bioenergy and bioproducts sectors. She is a member of several prestigious societies, including the RSC College of New Scholars, Artists and Scientists and the American Academy of Water Resources Engineers, and she received the Queen’s Prize for Excellence in Research in 2017.
