As the largest liquid freshwater reservoir on earth, groundwater has both a huge environmental and economic value, and will be an essential resource for adaptation to climate change and socio-economic development.
Over the past few years the critical role of groundwater resources in enhancing water and food security and adapting to global change has persisted.
In fact, the need for trained and skilled professionals in this field has further increased.
Several factors foster the need for a more comprehensive and multidisciplinary educational groundwater programme.
The JMD programme on Groundwater and Global Change - Impact and Adaptation (Groundwatch) offers a distinctive curriculum built around the following academic focal areas:
(1) General Hydrogeology;
(2) Groundwater Data Collection, Interpretation and Modelling;
(3) Climate Processes and Modelling;
(4) Integrated River Basin and Water Resource Management;
(5) Groundwater and Environmental Impacts;
(6) Groundwater, Society and Policies; and
(7) Groundwater, Climate and Global Change Impacts and Adaptation.
With this curriculum GroundwatCH aims to address the current gaps in higher education with regard to the understanding of the interactions between groundwater, surface water, climate change and society, and how we need to consider and can benefit from these interactions when dealing with adaptation.
Innovation and excellence in GroundwatCH is stimulated by the collaboration between three European HEIs, each with a distinct profile providing added value to the course:
i) the environmental engineering perspective provided by IST Lisbon, as well as the expertise of its Groundwater Research Centre in semi-arid hydrogeology;
ii) the international experience of IHE in hydro(geo)logical research, education and capacity building across the globe;
iii) the renowned expertise in climate and hydrology from TU Dresden with its well-matched combination of engineering, geo and natural sciences.
The course programme and learning outcomes are complemented through fieldwork and field visits, short courses and summer school taught by renowned guest lecturers and scholars in their field.
GroundwatCH has a strongly applied character and stands very close to the professional practice, directly involving 29 associated partners from the public, private and academic labour market in lecturing, internships, MSc supervision and career guidance.
