Program description

This course will offer a set of methods and techniques for analysis and monitoring of climate change, with applications in climate change impacts and adaptation.

Freshwater is indispensable to all forms of life and is needed in large quantities in almost all human activities. Climate, freshwater, biophysical and socio-economic systems are interconnected in complex ways, so a change in any one of these induces a change in another. Anthropogenic climate change is an additional major pressure on nations that are already confronting the issue of sustainable freshwater use.

The challenges related to freshwater include too much water, too little water and too much pollution. Each of these problems may be exacerbated by climate change. Freshwater-related issues play a pivotal role among the key regional and sectoral vulnerabilities.

Therefore, the relationship between climate change and freshwater resources is of primary concern and interest. On completion of this course, one will have: A better understanding of the links of both natural and anthropogenically induced climate change, its impacts, and adaptation and mitigation response options concerning water-related issues;

Subjects
Satellite Data Products; Climate Change; Climate Change Impacts and Adaptations.

Objectives
A better understanding of the links of both natural and anthropogenically induced climate change, advanced knowledge to inform policymakers and stakeholders about the implications of climate change and climate change response options for water resources.
