About this Course
The primary goal of the course is to provide “common-core” knowledge in the disciplines essential for establishing a successful IWRM environment.
Upon completion of the course the United Nations University will award students with a Diploma in Integrated Water Resources Management. This diploma will be awarded for the successful completion of the full course (total 10 modules). A UNU Certificate of Completion will be given for the satisfactory completion of the main modules after module 1 has been completed (i.e., modules 2 to 9).
The curriculum offers a broad-based coverage of the principles and practices of IWRM, with knowledge being presented from the natural sciences, engineering, health, governance, public administration, social sciences, economics, resource conservation, planning, as well as aspects of program and project management.
Candidates should have:
- A degree or equivalent level qualification.
- Relevant professional experience.
- Proficiency in English (or Spanish, if done through CATHALAC).
