Department of Governance and Technology for Sustainability, University of Twente (CSTM) Do you believe that socio-technical change is needed to make our planet more resilient and sustainable? Are you eager to gain the knowledge, skills and competencies needed to organize and manage such changes, either locally or internationally? If so, the Master’s programme Environmental and Energy Management (MEEM) at the University of Twente is the right choice for you.
Combine knowledge and action
Today’s grand challenges – climate change, resource depletion, urbanization, ecological and socio-economic stress – call for professionals able to organize, manage and lead socio-technical change. This combined focus, on thinking and doing lies at the heart of the MEEM programme. Its social science-oriented Master’s programme will provide you with knowledge, skills and competencies in various social science disciplines, such as Management, Public Administration, Governance and Law. This will prepare you to lead and manage socio-technical change processes in the industrial, environmental, energy and water domains.
Three focal points in sustainable development
The core of this one-year, English-taught programme consists of three interconnected domains of sustainable development: environment, energy and water. The programme teaches the interrelated management and governance of these three crucial natural resources. Graduating in one of the three domains will prepare you for working with multidisciplinary teams in business, government, consultancy or (PhD) research anywhere in the world.

United Nations University, Institute for Environment and Human Security (UNU-EHS) The Pan African University Institute of Water and Energy Sciences (including Climate Change) (PAUWES), is a centre of excellence at the University of Tlemcen in Algeria. Called into existence by the African Union Commission in 2008, the Pan African University (PAU) is guided by the vision of an Africa managed by its own citizens and acting as a dynamic force in the international arena.
PAUWES offers two world class graduate programmes in which students address today’s most pressing development challenges. As secure water supply and innovative energy sources are of vital importance for the future of sustainable growth on the African continent, the institute is seeking a new generation of highly educated, well-trained students, who are committed to this goal.
The Master in Water and the Master in Energy programmes both offer a policy and an engineering track, awarding a joint degree from the Pan African University and the University of Tlemcen. Students are taught by renowned educators from African universities and the international academic community. They have access to state-of-the-art facilities, cutting-edge research and a distinguished faculty. Supported through cooperation with higher education and research institutions on the continent and beyond, the institute also benefits from a professional network of public, private and civil society actors.
UNU-EHS contributes to the development of ICT-based solutions to support the educational programme, social and professional networking among the online community of practice, and entrepreneurship and technology transfer.
School of International Development, University of East Anglia (DEV) The course provides participants with a comprehensive grounding in the rationale and evolution of water stewardship to address shared water security challenges, as well as the principle strategies and tools used to implement water stewardship plans in practice. It will offer insights gained from our combined contributions to many of the aspects that make up water stewardship, including integrated water resources management, water risk analysis, water accounting, water policy and regulation and stakeholder engagement. Specific case studies will broaden the discussion of water issues from sector- or business-specific concerns to a more comprehensive understanding of the challenges and drivers of water issues across government, private sector, civil society and local communities. Course sessions will include a combination of concepts, tools and case studies through both taught and practical sessions, through which participants will be able to discuss and compare their experiences. The course is designed to allow an ample and secure space for discussion of and expert feedback on participants' own experiences, strategies and challenges with regard to designing and implementing water stewardship for the diverse supply chains and contexts in which they work.
School of International Development, University of East Anglia (DEV) This Master's degree interprets water security in its broad political ecology and political economy sense. We believe that the hydrological cycle is intimately connected to critical global policy concerns, climate change, food trade and food security, energy security and in turn to the international cooperation that affects human, community, regional and state security.
The programme will critically reflect on the practical and theoretical facets of water security with a view to develop a better foundation upon which to achieve developmental and environmental objectives.
We will provide the latest interdisciplinary theory and tools necessary to rise to the challenges and students will graduate with the knowledge and tools to be able to understand and audit the water security of a system of interest be it nation, region, company, sector, scheme or household.
The MSc Water Security and International Development degree will be offered over one year full-time, or two years part-time.

School of International Development, University of East Anglia (DEV) Bringing together key strengths in water politics, climate change, agricultural water management and water allocation, this course will provide participants with an exceptional chance to acquire an understanding of this key global issue. The Water Security Research Centre (UEA) currently offers two professional training courses: Water Security for Policy Makers and Practitioners and Water Stewardship. The course introduces and explores different interpretations of water security in an international and developing economy context. Participants will acquire a wide variety of tools and analytical frameworks from a variety of disciplines and an extended understanding of this key national and global issue. They will leave the course with an ability to critically assess and address current water security issues and policies and to gain an appreciation of the relations between water security and development, health, climate, food, and national security. Participants will also substantially develop their networks and resource bases.
