Our collaborative relationships and a community of practice build from our core workshops, hosted by different institutions covering diverse themes. Our core workshop model is designed around pre-workshop planning, intensive face-to-face discussion, and post-workshop follow-up activities.

We have hosted two workshops since our inaugural gathering at Texas A&M University in September 2016.  We met to examine progress towards a household water insecurity metric hosted by Sera Young at Northwestern University in August 2017, and then in late February 2018 another workshop addressed the complexities of water sharing, gifting, and exchange hosted by Amber Wutich at Arizona State University.

Since being funded in 2018, the HWISE-RCN continues to facilitate and plan workshops to further collaboration and advance the missions and goals of the network.
