Sustainable Development Goal 6: Clean Water and Sanitation
Water is the lifeblood of the San Joaquin Valley, a naturally arid region that sustains its incredibly productive agricultural sector through irrigation. Despite the importance of water throughout our region, many impoverished communities in the San Joaquin Valley struggle with access to clean water. The geographical characteristics of Fresno State in Central California, as a major agricultural center, have provided an opportunity for scholars to focus on recognized environmental challenges concerning water shortage. The broad vision for Fresno State’s sustainability initiative is to establish Fresno State as a model for the practice, education and research of water, agriculture and sustainability.
