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.
