Changing climate patterns have affected Texas considerably in recent years in the form of extreme weather events such as droughts, floods and heat.

The Hunt Institute for Engineering & Humanity

We aim to shift the foundation of poverty through action and empowerment, not charity. The Hunt Institute strives to bring together the most talented minds from fields including engineering, science, business, international development and global economics, and combine their efforts with market forces to improve the standard of living for those living in extreme poverty. We focus on access to clean water; creating affordable shelter, including design justice for the marginalized; hygiene education and promotion; access to energy; and meeting basic infrastructure needs.
