By 2050, 70 percent of the world’s population, some 6.4 billion people, are expected to live in towns and cities, almost doubling the current urban population. Skilled sustainability professionals are needed in order to create effective solutions to the complex global water challenges. How we explore the water-related challenges we face is often framed by the approaches and strategies we use to examine them. Too often, however, we solve problems by utilizing overly narrow, comfortable, and quick reductionist approaches that inadequately deal with today’s complex, dynamic and diverse problems.
This course will equip attendees with the theory, practice and skills to guide cities and the different sectors in managing water holistically. It will enable participants to understand the complex global and regional water-related challenges and to develop an integrated strategies and sustainable solution for coordinated planning, development and management of water resources.
The course will also use a multi-disciplinary approach to explore the technical, economic legal and institutional frameworks for sustainability and introduces some of the toolset that are useful for sustainable water resources management.
There is no course fee. Sponsored by a partnership of international development organisations, the course is free. Because of this condition and the opportunity it represents, special commitment is solicited for those interested participants to actively follow the course, participate in all activities, and complete all modules.
Interested participants must apply for this course before Friday, September 14th, 2018.
