The main purpose of the online course is to develop participants’ skills on planning, design, construction, operation and maintenance and management of urban drainage systems. The course describes the
Human beings interact with the natural water cycle in two main forms: the abstraction of water from the natural cycle to provide a water supply for human life, maintain a standard of living and satisfy the needs of industry and the changing of the natural surface with impermeable surfaces that divert rainwater away from the local natural system of drainage. These interactions give rise to two types of water that require drainage and resulted in the need of drainage systems especially in urban areas. The purposes of urban drainage systems include maintaining public health and safety, flood control, waste transport, water collection and recycling. Cities now house half of the world population, consume three quarter of its resources, and yet occupy only two per cent of the land surface. By the middle of the next century, it is predicted that seventy per cent of the global population will live in urban areas.Properly designed and operated urban drainage systems with its interactions with other urban water systems are crucial element of healthy and safe urban environment. The main purpose of the online course is to develop participants’ skills on planning,design,construction,operation
