7th edition of the Summer School in “Water Governance: Framework and Negotiations” (Certificate of Advanced Studies-CAS), 1-12th July, 2024

The management of water resources faces environmental, climatic, political and economic challenges. In this changing environment, innovative policies should be designed to foster collaboration between states, civil society and the private sector. To this end, practitioners and decision-makers need to develop new analytical skills. The objective of the “Water Governance: Framework and Negotiations” Summer School programme is to provide skills and knowledge based on the latest scientific research applicable in professional contexts. Participants will learn how to use water governance tools to address complex political situations, be resilient when a crisis strikes, and innovate in the face of risk and uncertainty.

This programme has been designed as a blended training programme and is composed of a MOOC in Water Resources Management and Policy, a Module1, and four face-to-face interactive modules that will be delivered at the University of Geneva, as follows:
Module 2: Hydropolitics
Module 3: International Water Law at the Intersection of Different Fields of International Law
Module 4: Conflict Management Processes
Module 5: Data, Water and Cooperation
