Program description

Introduction to Water Management
Many regions of the world are increasingly facing challenges when it comes to managing water, and the nature of these challenges differs from one location to the next. It may relate to having too little water while water demands are growing explosively (water scarcity), too much water (flooding), and water of poor quality rendering them unfit to sustain the ecosystem or challenges related to providing water for people, industry and agriculture. Addressing these challenges requires that water managers apply an integrated and interdisciplinary approach, involving hydrological, biophysical, chemical, economic, institutional, legal, policymaking and planning aspects.

Water Management Program
The Water Management Program provides such an integrated and interdisciplinary approach. The program brings together the scientific study of water resources with practical planning and management skills. Participants are encouraged to study water management from a multi-disciplinary perspective and to seek integrated solutions. Twelve months of blended and innovative learning methods, including lectures, laboratory and fieldwork, case studies, group work, role-plays and self-study, are complemented by six months of applied research in the field of water management theory and practice. The Water Management Masters Program aims to develop knowledge, insight and skills required to design, implement and evaluate water management policies and strategies to achieve effective governance of water resources. .
