Environmental challenges continue to multiply as the global population expands to more than 9 billion people by 2050 and as demands for clean water, food, and energy rise, all in the context of global climate change. The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine invites you to the public release of a new report, Environmental Engineering in the 21st Century: Addressing Grand Challenges.
The report was developed by experts from a wide range of fields who, with input from the scientific community, identify the biggest global challenges over the next several decades for which the expertise of environmental engineers will be needed. The study also describes how the environmental engineering field—and colleges and universities—might evolve to better address those challenges. The study is modeled, in part, on the NAE Grand Challenges in Engineering.
