Erasmus Mundus MSc in flood risk management


The Erasmus Mundus Master Programme in Flood Risk Management is offered by a consortium consisting of

- UNESCO-IHE Institute for Water Education (the Netherlands)
- Technical University of Dresden (Germany)
- Barcelona Tech (Barcelona, Spain)
- University of Ljubljana (Slovenia)

Degree: Successful candidates receive MSc degrees from TU Dresden, UNESCO-IHE and UPC Barcelona.

The associated members include European hydraulics laboratories, namely, DHI (Denmark), Deltares (the Netherlands) and HR Wallingford (UK), and key national organisations responsible for flood management, including Rijkswaterstaat (the Netherlands), ICHARM (Japan) and three organisations from Bangladesh. These partners bring their specific complementary expertise in flood risk management to the programme.

Integrated flood risk management aims to reduce the human and socio-economic losses caused by flooding while at the same time taking into account the social, economic, and ecological benefits from floods and the use of flood plains or coastal zones. The need for the adoption of a holistic integrated approach to managing flood risks has been reflected in Flood Directive of the European Parliament.

The programme follows the holistic approach and is explicitly designed to cover wide range of topics - from drivers and natural processes to models, decisions and socio-economic consequences and institutional environment, and is therefore an important advance in water education for Europe.
