Water, Food and Energy
Food and energy production require substantial amounts of water. At the same time, water scarcity, and the decline of ecosystems threaten equitable access to food and energy.
You will examine water related linkages between food and low-carbon energy production, critically assessing possible trade-offs and synergies.
Integrated approaches for land and water management will be considered in the broader context of land tenure and water reform processes, relating this to markets, technologies and social justice.
You will learn to critically analyse how changes in water and land allocation, to produce food and energy, shape processes of rural transformation and livelihoods of different groups in society. Depending on the profile you choose, you will learn to develop appropriate governance mechanisms and digital innovations; plan, design, operate and maintain irrigation infrastructure or develop and integrate new and existing forms of water-based energy, amongst many other subjects. In summary, this track aims for society’s transformation to more sustainable and equitable practices.
