Venue: University of East Anglia, Norwich, UK
The course will provide policy-makers with comprehensive background knowledge relevant to the increasingly important policy challenge of ‘water security’. The course will explore how the multiple levels of water security – human, community, state, international and global – require broad but considered policy inputs. Emphasis will be placed on the inter-dependencies of different sectors (climate security, food security, energy security) that interact within a ‘web’ of water security. Participants can expect to leave the course with an ability to critically assess and address current water security policy, to gain an appreciation of the relations between water security and energy, climate, food, human or national security, and to have extended their networks and resource base. A certificate of completion will be issued by the School of International Development, University of East Anglia (UK).
