Securing access to clean water for all is a Sustainable Development Goal and one the most important sustainability questions worldwide.

Develop your ability to analyse, evaluate, and critically review theory and policy debates relating to sustainability.  You will be able to draw on international perspectives and examples of best practice in relation to methods of evaluation and assessment of water sustainability.

You will design and plan interventions for creating change to promote greater water security across different scales in various parts of the world, including in post-conflict regions. You will design and complete a dissertation to address significant areas of the theory and practice of water management under the supervision of leading experts in the field.

This course will be taught in close cooperation with the University's world-leading Centre for Water Law, Policy and Science (a UNESCO category 2 Water Centre).

In 2015, all UN countries pledged support for the 17 Sustainable Development Goals to achieve a more prosperous future for all while protecting natural resources. This course aligns itself closely to these goals and you will have the opportunity to learn more about them during your studies.
