Saskatoon’s The StarPhoenix interviews water security researcher Howard Wheater

To mark his participation at the Agricultural Bioscience International Conference (ABIC 2014), Saskatoon’s The StarPhoenix has run a feature-length profile of Howard Wheater, Canada Excellence Research Chair in Water Security at the University of Saskatchewan.

The profile, titled "Water, water everywhere - but for how long?" details the water-based challenges facing Saskatchewan, Canada and the rest of the world. In addition to pollution and water quality, Wheater touches on global food needs, flooding and drought.

“It's a time when it's appropriate to do something big about water,” says Wheater. “There [are] a lot of water challenges, many more than most people realize, I think."

Find out how Wheater is addressing these and other challenges at the University of Saskatchewan’s Global Institute for Water Security.
