    Hello, my name is Deema Dabbagh I am a masters candidate in the department of urban and environmental policy and planning at Tufts. I am very interested in making an impact on the world by adopting sustainable development and using this as a means to promote a cleaner, greener, and safer globe. Water quality management in local communities deserves profound research, investment, and attention. I believe the adversities associated with climate change and the persistence of unsustainable practices is only exacerbating this issue.

    Essentially I am very interested I researching and understanding the complexities governing water shortages, quality, and mismanagement. Raising awareness and education concerning water related issues at both a local and global level is critical.
