CARE gives priority on interdisciplinary researches in the fields of water and climate change including: Water Resource Management, Hydrology and Climate Change, Water and Wastewater Treatment Technology, Eco-toxicology. The specific research areas are as follows:
Water Quality Management
Water resource management
Management of coastal areas
Policies on urban and industrial water using
Integrate management of urban water
Risk control of flooding
Urban water management including drainage and supplying systems
Hydrology and Climate Change
Impacts of climate change on water resources, mitigation and adaptation to climate change
Impacts of climate change to salinization intrusion in water source for coastal cities
Mitigation and adaptation measurements to climate change
Set up scenarios of land losing / flooded in sea level rise
Assessment of river erosion / coastal in climate change
Impacts of climate change on water quality used for agriculture / aquaculture in delta areas
Conflicts of water use among local regions and countries in river basin when lack of fresh water
Impacts of climate change on hydrological regime of river
Water and Wastewater Treatment Technology
Treatment technology for water and wastewater for urban, industrial and agriculture / aquaculture.
Collect rainwater, wastewater and wastewater reuse.
Ecological technologies, and wetlands.
Rural water supply and sanitation.
Urban water technology: hygiene water systems, wastewater treatment systems, pump / pump station, water consumption.
Advanced technologies for water and wastewater.
Application of membrane technology in water and wastewater treatment
Use tropical organisms / indigenous to evaluate toxicity
Assess health impact due to contaminated water
Evaluation of endocrine disorders compounds (EDCs) in water
Assessment of bioaccumulation of trace contaminants / heavy metals on aquatic life.
