Sustainable ecohydrological water management under global change in Myanamar (SEWAMM)

DAAD funding "Subject-related partnerships with universities from developing countries

The project aims to develop a concept for a joint curriculum of three Burmese universities for an English-language master's course in "sustainable ecohydrological water resources management under global change in Myanmar" (SEWAMM). The main focus is on the conception of four core modules as an integral part of the already existing study programmes at the three partner universities. The aspect of sustainability and the problem-oriented, research-based teaching will thus become part of the studies and training of young water scientists. The national and international exchange in water-related development cooperation will be strengthened.
