Local to Global Water Vulnerability and Resilience
Many different environmental and societal problems are directly related to water resources.
An important part of this course is problem oriented, with case study analyses of water resources and water quality. Such analyses are needed in several professions, since water-related issues are on the global agenda, e.g., in international conflict management, environmental management by governmental agencies, environmental policy, and industrial and agricultural impact assessments.
The course considers water resources and water quality, pollution spreading through surface, ground and coastal water systems, effects of water scarcity on plants and agricultural systems, as well as vulnerability and resilience of water resources. Regional analyses are also related to global water resource vulnerability and resilience.
The course is part of Master's Programme in Hydrology, Hydrogeology and Water Resources but can also be read as a separate course.
