Deakin University Australia
Deakin University has a connected approach to solving global challenges. We bring together different schools of thinking and people across disciplines to translate ideas into solutions for some of the biggest, most complex global challenges. Our research is guided by five themes:
Enabling a sustainable world
By placing sustainability at the centre of all our research, we help to prioritise the protection of all species, advance a circular economy and support the transition to sustainable energy solutions. This applies to our research in land, air and marine ecosystems, renewable energy and resource management technologies – resulting in positive outcomes for our local and global communities.
Improving health and wellbeing
We’re driving research that improves lives – locally and globally – in meaningful ways. Our research addresses the world’s most significant health challenges at individual and population levels. With global partners and local communities, we’re working to highlight inequities, improve health care systems of prevention and management, and identify innovative technological solutions.
Advancing society, culture and the economy
We’re helping to strengthen society, culture and the economy through creative and intercultural approaches to education, the arts and business. Australia’s heritage, First Nations’ knowledge and inter-cultural histories inform our solutions for a sustainable, inclusive society. We’re looking to the past and the future to strengthen inclusive societies, prioritise education and build resilient communities.
Creating smarter technologies
We’re developing technology with ethical foundations to support a sustainable, progressive society. Our research focuses on a human-centred approach to developing technologies for education, health, manufacturing and defence. We’re creating technologies that improve people’s lives while playing a key role in Australia’s economic future – delivering valuable outcomes for industry and the community.
Building safe and secure communities
From strengthening community resilience to developing cutting edge cyber security, our cross-disciplinary research builds ethical, innovative solutions to global security problems. Addressing challenges from extremist and violent behaviours, to cyber-crime, to personal and global security, our researchers work with communities, organisations and government to develop technologies and translational knowledge that result in safer communities.

World’s largest cities facing water crises

Half the world’s large cities will confront water-scarcity issues by 2050. While there are solutions, the challenge will be to avoid further environmental or socioeconomic harm.
Currently, nine of the world’s 30 cities with populations greater than 10 million are in locations that experience water scarcity, either seasonally or all the time.
Now, a team led by a researcher from Deakin University in Australia has modelled global urban water scarcity in 2050 under different climate change and population scenarios.
Their findings suggest that, by mid-century, 19 megacities and at least half of all large cities will be facing water scarcity, mainly due to population increases and the associated rise in water demand.
Most of these large cities will be able to address water shortages with solutions such as desalination plants, groundwater exploitation and improved water efficiency, but some approaches such as reservoir construction could damage river ecosystems, the researchers warn.
