About Us

Water insecurity is increasingly a cause of social and political instability threatening peace and security at all levels. The Geneva Water Hub aims at better understanding and preventing water-related tensions between competing uses, between public and private actors, and between political entities and countries. The Geneva Water Hub is a joint Project of the Swiss Confederation (Agency for Development and Cooperation, Global Programme Water) and the University of Geneva. As of 2017, it becomes a Centre of the University of Geneva.
