      Water resources, indispensable basis for development, food supply and health, become ever scarcer and more polluted. The concept of Integrated Water Resources Management (IWRM) offers solutions to the water crisis in linking water to other vital resources. It regards the whole water cycle in connection with human interventions as the basis for sustainable water management. Worldwide, there is a high and growing demand for experts adequately trained in the concepts of IWRM. Next to the technical and managerial knowledge related to water resources, these experts should also be familiar with the practices of project funding and international cooperation. Projects between Europe and Arab countries need experts who are familiar with the culture, language and politics of both sides and are well trained in intercultural communication.

      · Welche Ziele werden in diesem Kurs verfolgt?

      The objective of the program is to form such experts and to promote the concept of IWRM within the context of European Arab cooperation. Target groups of the program are recently graduated professionals with working experience in public or private institutions, authorities and enterprises of the water sector. The applicants should be active in or dealing with water or natural resources management and have an interest in learning and working in an intercultural and multi-disciplinary environment. The profile of the Master’s program is application-oriented. Besides providing the participants with an overview on the water sector in general, the aim is to educate experts in the field of Integrated Water Resources Management. This requires a diversification of their knowledge and leads to the capability of cross-linked thinking. The answer to complex environmental and water related problems requires economic and managerial competencies more than classical technical knowledge. The consolidation of different disciplines has not only a methodological dimension, but a cultural and a human component as well, because interdisciplinary team work requires knowledge sharing and effective communication.
