At a Los Angeles Clean Tech Incubator conference, Coro Southern California recognized UCLA with the Meaningful Impact Award for its water conservation initiatives. UCLA is championing sustainability and water innovation through a number of research programs including the UCLA Water Resources Group and the Sustainable L.A. Grand Challenge.

The UCLA Water Resources Group, headquartered at the Institute, is dedicated to fostering communication and collaboration, informing policymakers about the latest in science and technology and working with the private sector to develop sustainable water resources in Southern California. Researchers from the group are also involved with the University’s Sustainable L.A. Grand Challenge to reach 100 percent renewable energy, 100 percent locally sourced water, and enhanced ecosystem health for Los Angeles County by 2050.
