|| Training Courses (Duration: 2 Weeks)
|| This Online Summer School takes place within the context of the RARSUS-project (Risk Assessment and Reduction Strategies for Sustainable Urban Resource Supply in Sub-Saharan Africa) with ZEF being one of the German project-partner (more information below).
It is designed for Master students (or PhD students) in fields related to water and energy management including climate change in both urban and semi-urban contexts. The participant must be registered students (MSc or PhD) in one of the following fields: geography, hydrology, water management, economics, social science, engineering, anthropology, environmental and/or natural science or related disciplines.
Participants will gain detail knowledge in the field of water and energy including climate change and will be empowered to pursue their own line of inquiry using real case studies. In addition, participants will be able to use their knowledge to solve problems supported and facilitated by lecturers. The summer school will also prepare participants to learn on demand and assist them to be flexible to future complex and changing research problems.
The online summer school will take place for two weeks and pulls together the expertise and contribution from all partners and external partners of the consortium, which are subsequently responsible for specific modules of the summer school. The online summer school will focus on the following topics:
-Risk and Vulnerability – Theory and Assessment
-Resilience & Climate Change in African Cities
-Climate-resilient Energy Supply Infrastructure
-Water, Energy and Food Interactions in Urban Contexts
-Hydrology-based Approaches for Developing and Operating Infrastructure for Water Management in Urban Settings
-Spatial Planning in the Context of Urban Water Management
