About the course
The course investigates the alteration of hydrological regimes caused by land-use changes and urbanisation. Policies and activities (channels, dams and reservoirs) are discussed in terms of their implementation by societies to cope with water availability and water demand. The course also deals with societal responses to hydrological changes, water governance, and impact of hydrological extremes. Lastly, you will examine the role of culture, technology, economy and climate in shaping the dynamic interplay between hydrology and society.
