Water Resources and Ecosystem Health
Globally, ecosystems and the water resources they support are in perilous decline. Maintaining healthy ecosystems is the basis for delivering resources equitably and efficiently to support people’s health and well-being and is the basis for sustainability.
You will learn about the movement of water through the landscape and how to apply this knowledge to support sustainable management of river basins.
You will study the basic concepts and interlinkages in the biosphere, the role of biodiversity, the hydrological cycle, their relationship with ecosystem health and how this underpins human health and wellbeing. Depending on the profile you choose, you will learn about measuring and monitoring, data analysis, GIS and remote sensing, simulation modelling, the value of open access data and software, river basin development and environmental management policy processes, and methods for planning and managing. Ultimately you will be able to apply your expertise to achieve sustainable Water Resources and Ecosystem Health in an interdisciplinary setting.
