IWRM Education: E-Learning Module on Integrated Water Resources Management

One pos­si­bi­lity to sup­port the world­wide im­ple­men­ta­tion of IWRM is to im­prove re­spec­tive re­se­arch and edu­ca­tion.
This is why IWAS (In­ter­na­tio­nal Wa­ter Re­se­arch Al­li­ance Sa­x­ony), to­ge­ther with the Ger­man IHP/​HWRP (In­ter­na­tio­nal Hy­dro­lo­gi­cal Pro­gramme of UNESCO and Hy­dro­logy and Wa­ter Re­sour­ces Pro­gramme of WMO), has de­ve­l­o­ped an E-​​learning mo­dule on IWRM that is sup­po­sed to com­ple­ment clas­si­cal learning op­ti­ons.
Since IWRM is com­plex and as in­ter­di­sci­pli­na­rity is of­ten mis­sing in wa­ter ma­nage­ment, the mo­dule in­ter­links lec­tures, i.e. the­ma­tic and geo­gra­phi­cal link­a­ges (e.g. cli­mate change) bet­ween the lec­tures ap­pear, al­lo­wing the user to switch from one lec­ture to ano­ther one.

De­ve­lop­ment ob­jec­tive has been a por­ta­ble and stand-​​alone hy­per­vi­deo web ap­p­li­ca­tion. Soft­ware de­ve­lop­ment and hy­per­vi­deo ar­chi­tec­ture was build upon stan­dard tech­no­logy and a spe­ci­fied so­cial vi­deo li­brary na­med vi-​​two.

Con­trac­tee: In­ter­na­tio­nal Hy­dro­logy Pro­gram /​ Hy­dro­logy Wa­ter Re­sour­ces Pro­gram (UNESCO) in co­ope­ra­tion with Tech­ni­sche Uni­ver­si­tät Dres­den and Helm­holtz Centre for En­viron­men­tal Re­se­arch - UFZ /​ Leip­zig.
