Young and mid-career water professionals dealing with, or interested to develop their knowledge and skills in, water resources assessment and modelling, in particular water resources monitoring and evaluation (both quantity and quality, and their integrated assessment), analytical and modelling skills to analyses spatial and temporal variability of water availability and demand, and evaluating alternative management interventions using integrated modelling tools.
PrerequisitesBasic knowledge of hydrology and water resources (both quantity and quality), assessment of water demand for various water uses and water allocation principles. Affinity to learn analytical (e.g. statistical tools) and modelling tools (e.g. rainfall-runoff and water allocation models) for water resources assessment and management.

- Evaluate and improve design of monitoring programme covering both water quantity and quality for water resources assessment in a given context.
- Conduct a spatio-temporal analysis of water resources using range of statistical techniques such as indicators of hydrological alteration (IHA), flow duration analysis and trend detection.
- Describe various types of models and modelling protocol to conduct a water resources assessment and modelling study.
- Discuss theoretical basis for water resources models, and apply an integrated model, in particular combination of rainfall-runoff with water allocation modelling, using WEAP software for a selected river basin.
