BIDR researchers and students investigate ways to meet global challenges related to food security, water scarcity and clean energy.
Our mission is to combat desertification and facing global challenges by bringing together water, food, energy, and environmental research.
Albert Katz International School for Desert Studies: 250 students from 20 countries, 700 alumni from 45 countries.
By 2050, there will be 9 billion people in the world. The farmland needed to feed them lies in arid and semi-arid regions.
41% of Earth’s landmass is Drylands, and is home to more than 2 billion people.
Water is one of the earth’s most crucial resources, but it is finite.
