U.S.-Pakistan Center for Advanced Studies in Water at the University of Utah (USPCASW, UU) is a world class education and applied research center dedicated to resolving Pakistan’s water crises through applied research, developing specialist human resource and technologies; academia-industry collaboration; and policy formulation.

USPCASW is part of the Centers for Advanced Studies (CAS) program funded by USAID. Under the CAS Program, universities from U.S. with expertise in agriculture, water, and energy will be connected as sister schools with Pakistani universities and conduct joint applied research, student and faculty exchanges, joint revision of curriculum, and conferences. By the end of the program, the three centers will be ready to serve as research hubs, policy think tanks, and incubators for innovation to mitigate Pakistan’s key development challenges.

USPCASW, UU is generating cost-effective and sustainable solutions to Pakistan’s challenges related to water, while educating the next generation of scientists, engineers, and policy makers through innovative academic programs and empowering women scientists and researchers to actively participate in applied research to solve Pakistan’s contemporary problems.
