À propos du cours

Water management today is faced with new challenges such as climate change or the effects of human activity. Public and private stakeholders who are active in this field must develop new ways to better manage the water cycle "as a whole". The objective of this MOOC is to develop an understanding of the problems related to water management. Firstly, this course will define a resource and, more specifically, the resource of water. It will look at how water is used and the activities associated with it as well as any potential conflicts. The course will look at water management in detail through the analysis of the different types of rights and obligations associated with, for example, the development of a multi-sectorial regulation system or a watershed management approach. By the end of this course, our aim is to enable you to: 1) Identify the main issues and strategies linked to water resource management 2) Acquire the key reading material needed to understand the many variables (environmental, institutional and political) which affect water and which, in terms of management, may require adjustment. This course was developed by the Geneva Water Hub. Alongside researchers from the University of Geneva from a range of faculties, researchers from other universities and research centres will be involved in this course. Practitioners who deal daily with the political dimension of water management will also input into the course. This MOOC is designed for all those interested in the water sector. Prior training is not necessary to follow our program. The findings presented in this course can be easily reapplied to different contexts and to different scales of analysis. This MOOC is supported by the Geneva Water Hub and the University of Geneva along with the MOOC in « Ecosystem Services: a Method for Sustainable Development » (www.coursera.org/learn/ecosystem-services) and the one in "International Water Law" (www.coursera.org/learn/droit-eau). This course is funded by the Global Programme Water Initiatives of the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC). This course is also available in French : www.coursera.org/learn/gestion-eau...

This course presents complex and hard to understand concepts of water resource management in a very subtle and precise way thus suitable for all learners from all backgrounds and learning levels.

The content of the course itself was very interesting and provided much valuable information. However, the structure and presentation of the course was lacking. The course was offered under the assumption of being English speaking. Because the videos and powerpoint slides were all filmed in a different language, the videos themselves were useless and provided no value to the course. I didn't play a single video because I can't understand French. The translations in the transcript were fine to get by; however, I missed a lot of valuable information from the slides since all of the definitions and diagrams were in French and there was no translation provided. The text transcript just stated "refer to the definition," but it was impossible for me to get the definition because it was all in French. Very disappointed in the construction of this course. It would be beneficial to provide translated diagrams and definitions for the information that is not provided outside of the slides.

This is an excellent introductory course shedding the light on the main issues related to water management and policy. I highly recommend it for anyone interested in water or environmental management and policy areas. What I like most about the course; the exposure to high profile international experts in the field and the friendly way of presenting the content. I would like to immensely thank the University of Geneva and all instructors who successfully design and deliver this course.

Muchas felicidades por este curso. Por la excelencia de sus profesores, por la sencillez de sus explicaciones y por la alta calidad de sus contenidos. He aprendido muchísimo. Es un conocimiento que no se encuentra en las pocas bibliotecas de mi país. A pesar de las diferencias de idioma he aprendido muchísimo y he tomado nota de las clases para volver a repasarlas. Para mí es solo el inicio para continuar aprendiendo. Muchas gracias. Samuel Lizama.

Muy interesante. He aprendido sobre los mecanismos que existen para que los países tengan conciliación con respecto a procesos de interés en el uso de cuerpos de agua naturales. También es impresionante que existan problemas tan fuertes por el interés del recurso. Muy bueno el curso.
