Presentación

This programme is offered either full and part time basis.
On this degree, you’ll critically reflect on the practical and theoretical facets of water security and discover how to develop a better foundation upon which to achieve developmental and environmental objectives.

Discover why we believe that the hydrological cycle is intimately connected to critical global policy concerns, climate change, food trade and food security, energy security and in turn to the international cooperation that affects human, community, regional and state security. We’ll provide the latest interdisciplinary theory and tools necessary to rise to the challenges and you’ll graduate with the knowledge and tools to be able to understand and audit the water security of a system of interest, be it at a national, regional, company, sector, scheme or household level.
