Course Description

The pressure on the world's freshwater resources is always increasing, with population growth, rising per-capita water consumption, pollution, and environmental degradation all contributing to ever-greater problems of availability and distribution. Competition for scarce water resources leads to transboundary disputes on a range of scales. The key to sustainable development of water resources lies in developing a thorough understanding of their variability and availability, taking an integrated approach to their development and management, and ensuring the participation of stakeholders at all stages of the project. This course covers all aspects of the evaluation, development, and management of Ground and Underground water resources
