WERF Decentralized Systems Research

This chart lists completed reports and ongoing research efforts for WERF's Decentralized Systems program. The timeframe is primarily from the past six years. To search for older reports on decentralized systems, go to www.werf.org/search and enter "decentralized" or another related topic, or enter a project or report number if you know it.

All decentralized projects may also be found on www.decentralizedwater.org, the official website of the Decentralized Water Resources Collaborative.
