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.
