This Catchment Management course provides a detailed in-depth look into sustainable resource management approaches from a catchment perspective, in contrast to a piecemeal approach that artificially separates land management from water management. This holistic view can define ways for protecting the surrounding land around drinking water sources.
The course will explore the major issues and the changes required by all stakeholders, highlighting current research and available tools in order to aid better decision making. It will highlight pollution pathways and explore prevention and management of pollution through no-build solutions vs traditional end of pipe solutions.
As water providers, we need to understand that there are competing demands for freshwater and acknowledge that surface and groundwaters also require sufficient water quality and quantity in order to protect ecosystems.
In order to achieve this balance, all stakeholders from within the water communities as well as policy makers, farmers, regulators, NGO’s, wildlife and nature organizations require a greater collaborative understanding and transparent decision making to deliver solutions.
