The aim of this course is to provide students with an understanding of the governance of freshwater resources from a social-ecological systems perspective. The course will explore water science and management as embedded in complex social and ecological contexts, shaped by interactions among culture, politics, economics and ecologies. Drawing on examples from local to global, the course will examine major paradigms of water resource management, and how these are applied and contested by diverse societal actors and stakeholders in politics and decision-making at different scales, incorporating examples from Aotearoa New Zealand.
