AquaPedia was originally developed at Tufts University. The initial AquaPedia website content consisted of case studies drawn from the Tufts Fall 2008 University Seminar on Water and Diplomacy: Integration of Science, Engineering, and Negotiations. At that time, faculty and students of Tufts University envisioned opening AquaPedia to the entire water management community to provide an environment for sharing water knowledge and wisdom across boundaries. Today, we have the capability to develop this knowledge base and community through our Water Diplomacy initiative.

Since the original conception of AquaPedia, we’ve been trying to refine how we organize case studies and enhance collaborative work flow. Anyone can join our ongoing project and search, read, and contribute to cases and background articles at
