GE7025 Vattenresursers sårbarhet och resiliens, lokalt till globalt, 15 hp
Many different environmental and societal problems are directly related to water resources. An important part of this course is problem oriented, with case study analyses of water resources and water quality. Such analyses are needed in several professions, since water-related issues are on the global agenda, e.g., in international conflict management, environmental management by governmental agencies, environmental policy, and industrial and agricultural impact assessments. The course considers water resources and water quality, pollution spreading through surface, ground and coastal water systems, as well as vulnerability and resilience of water resources. Regional analyses are also related to global water resource vulnerability and resilience.
