Programme Structure

The Climate Change in Integrated Water Management course is offered as a three week course. During the first week, the theoretical background will be given. In a one-day field trip, a practical example of dealing with (future) climate change in a municipal water system will be highlighted. In the second and third week entitled framework for modeling in water and climate, the participants learn to apply the climate change and variability issues in a set of modeling tools and come up with practical and integrated options to deal with climate issues in water management.

Audience

The course is designed for professionals actively involved in the water and climate sectors, for example working as policy makers at local, regional or national level, as staff of NGO's or in the private sector dealing with adaptation, or as junior university lecturers or scientists, and would like to receive an overview of the issue within a short period of time.
