From our director: The state of the institutesBy Roel Lopez
At the Texas A&M Institute of Renewable Natural Resources (IRNR) and the Texas Water Resources Institute (TWRI), we share a complementary mission. Our role is to advance the interdisciplinary approaches required to effectively address complex natural resource challenges.
Since land and water activities are intrinsically linked, the Institutes collaborate on a wide range of issues. Sharing the expertise of more than 50 full-time professional and support staff, resources and multiple locations around the region and nation, we partner with departments, research and extension centers and various organizations to offer a more complete and effective approach to addressing the critical natural resource-related issues of our time.
As we continue forward with these missions, we appreciate your support and are happy to share with you our 2013 Annual Reports for both TWRI and IRNR. These materials are available at twri.tamu.edu/about and irnr.tamu.edu/about.
