Holland, and the Dutch, are famous for having spent centuries mastering the art of water management. In view of the expected climate changes, this expertise and specialised knowledge in water management becomes increasingly important, especially how to apply them in other comparable contexts.
Considering the growing global demand, questions about how to govern the use and availability of drinking water deserve serious attention too. The programme also focusses on the relation between water shortage and water surplus.
Students can further develop their research skills on water-related issues by writing a research proposal or participating in an interdisciplinary project.
