UiB Global, University of Bergen How would you frame your research to make an impact on policies for a sustainable future? June 17-27, 2019 at the University of Bergen Deadline for applications: 24 February, 2019
We, as researchers, have an important role to play in the interface between science and policymaking. There is an urgent need to connect research to the 2030 Agenda. Next summer, we select 100 PhD candidates to discuss and explore science advice with some of the best international practitioners. BSRS 2019 offers a series of parallel multidisciplinary working groups with top international lecturers, and cutting-edge keynotes to help you make your research play a role for a sustainable future. The research school is tied together with common sessions on research tools, presentation skills, keynotes by high-profile researchers, plenary discussions, and an excursion into the Norwegian waterscape.
Courses: - Agenda 2030: Poverty, Climate Change and Sustainability - Migration Processes and Practices: Theories, methods and ethical conduct - Cultural Policy: Arts Heritage & Sustainability - The unfinished agenda of maternal and child health: Getting research into policy - Water management and sustainable development - Ocean, Climate, Society: Instabilities and mobilities on the climate change frontline
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) 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.
