The United Nations University Institute for Water, Environment, and Health (UNU-INWEH
) acts as the “UN Think Tank on Water” and contributes to the resolution of the global water challenge through a unique programme of applied research and education. Though they don't operate as a typical university with a physical campus, UNU-INWEH offers training and education through seminar series, online courses, and other opportunities. Through collaboration with a global set of researchers, organizations, and scientists, UNU-INWEH works to help developing countries build their capacity for lasting improvements in human and ecosystem health, and overall reduction in poverty. They work on a number of sustainability, water, and SDG-related issues.
UNU-INWEH is directed by Vladimir Smakhtin. They send out a regular newsletter with internal updates and relevant news stories. The most recent issue is available online here
