Research at IISD-ELA focuses on solutions to many of the most pressing challenges facing the world's freshwater.


When you donate you are providing essential financial resources so we can continue doing independent, integrative, high-quality research that can only be done at IISD Experimental Lakes Area.

Our donors support a wide range of research on urgent policy issues facing the world, provide the means to hire the best minds to work on complicated problems and give us the opportunity to seek innovative solutions.
