About the Course
The course comprehensively covers the principles and practical applications of the Integrated Water Resource Management.
IWAS (International Water Research Alliance Saxony), together with the German IHP/HWRP (International Hydrological Programme of UNESCO and Hydrology and Water Resources Programme of WMO), has developed an E-learning module on IWRM that is aimed at complementing classical learning options. Since IWRM is complex and as inter-disciplinarity is often missing in water management, the module interlinks lectures, i.e. thematic and geographical linkages (e.g. climate change) between the lectures appear, allowing the course taker to switch from one lecture to another one.
To facilitate access to the module, the 39 lectures are subdivided into six categories that span water and physical environment, technical measures, water governance, economic instruments, tools, implementation and case studies.
- Water and the physical environment
- Technical measures
- Water governance
- Economic instruments
- IWRM implementation and case studies
