Journeys Across Borders & Oceans

 In Newsletter

CBEMN researchers travelled far and wide this year to conduct various water monitoring projects. CBEMN researcher Melissa Healey, travelled as part of her Master’s thesis project in December 2011 to collect water quality research in the Gambia, West Africa. This trip also solidified previous communication, meetings and resource sharing with the Ministry of Fisheries and Water Resources in The Gambia.

Further international partnerships have been cemented through the research trip to the Bardia region of Western Nepal in April 2012. Cathy Conrad, CURA coordinators Oliver Woods and Sarah Weston and CURA researcher Tyson Daoust, used this journey as an opportunity to develop community water monitoring programs, determining water needs and pilot the WET-PRO toolkit on a new platform. This trip offered new partnerships, standardizing water monitoring programs worldwide and educational outreach on the prevention of pollution and water-borne illness.
