Amber Wutich and Alexandra Brewis-Slade

Wutich and Brewis-Slade created the "Global Ethnohydrology Study (GES)" that engages undergraduates students by having them carry out cross-cultural research pertaining to water, among four different countries. Their goal was to understand how cultural beliefs and practices contribute to people's access to water.

They found that interactional justice plays a key role in these culture's ability to access water. Additionally, they found that lower income families have a more difficult time gaining and securing access to water.
