Spring School on Water Systems, Science and Practice
WSSP2016
March 14-18, 2016 . School of Science and Engineering, LUMS, Pakistan

WIT is organising a Spring School on Water Systems, Science & Practice to be held at LUMS from March 14 to March 18, 2016. The aim of the workshop is to bring together academics (students, researchers, scientists) and practitioners (policy makers, government representatives) and engage them in addressing water management through a multidisciplinary approach. This is important because addressing water challenges requires water managers to apply an integrated and interdisciplinary approach, involving hydrological, economic, institutional, legal, policymaking and planning aspects.

The workshop is critical for building capacity in the water sector and will help to bridge the gap between academia and practice, and establish a fruitful co-operation between the academic community and industry, development agencies, NGOs, public administration, local communities, and other relevant institutions for building capacity in innovation and technology for water management.
