Urban and Environmental Policy and Planning

There is a natural linkage between urban and environmental policy and planning and sustainable water systems. At UEP we explore how public policy and planning questions relate to water as a scarce natural resource, a human right, a shared resource, a geopolitical boundary, and a potential threat to life, health and the built environment. Future practitioners in the water field will benefit from courses directed at public policy and urban planning issues, as well as the opportunity to study sustainable water management.
