Science and policy must work together to achieve a sustainable future for humanity.
Luzma Fabiola Nava is a Guest Research Scholar at IIASA, where she gained post-doctoral research experience conducting research on transboundary water resources between the USA and Mexico, with specific focus on the Rio Grande/Bravo (RGB) basin. One of the main results of her two years (2014-1016) research experience has been the elaboration of policy recommendations to improve transboundary water management and foster water resources sustainability between the USA and Mexico, by means of redesigning the binational institutions which govern water resources allocation between these two countries.
Since autumn 2017, she has been mandated by the National Council for Science and Technology (CONACYT) to serve as Researcher - CONACYT at the Center for Global Change and Sustainability in the Southeast, C.A. (CCGSS) in Mexico. At the CCGSS she is working on the research project entitled 'Towards Sustainable Management of Water Resources in the Southeast of Mexico and adjacent areas of Central America'.
Her primary research and professional interests include the use of political science and geography to analyze water resources management, water governance, sustainable development practices, stakeholders' interests and perceptions. Dr. Nava works collaboratively with other disciplines to promote stakeholders' engagement and a better understanding of water resources challenges and issues across borders and within territories. For her, drawing policy recommendations based on stakeholders' insights is essential to adapt management of water resources and ensure their sustainability.
