    In conjunction with Amsterdam International Water Week and Aquatech 2019!

    From October 28th until November 8th 2019, JOIN US ON A UNIQUE 2-WEEK STUDY TOUR OF THE NETHERLANDS. In this immersion of Dutch water innovation, build your leadership skills on solutions for climate change impacts, see the ingredients for collaborative effort and go home with connections that will back your local adaptation efforts.

    The tour will have an experiential learning focus. Not only will we learn from the hundred of years of Dutch adaptation to extreme water threats, but as an international diverse group we will debate the resilience building options that the Dutch also need to address rising drought conditions and community response to potential vulnerability - while also extrapolating the resilience building pathways needed in other parts of the Asia Pacific such as Australia, Myanmar and Indonesia.

    Tour regional and major cities to see and learn first-hand, how Dutch flood protection and adaptation measures have evolved and are being implemented. Plus as part of the Amsterdam International Water Week, we will take part in the International conference and field trips.

    If you are interested to join, please contact Gregor van Essen no later than 30 June 2019 at [email protected]

    You are cordially invited to a public lecture by the Department of Environmental Sciences and Policy on:
    Myanmar and the University of Yangon:
    A Comparative Study on Integrated Water Management and Water Policy between Myanmar and Hungary

    By
    Thanda Aye Ph.D.
    Professor, Department of Botany, University of Yangon

    Introduction:
    Zoltán Illés, Professor, Department of Environmental Sciences and Policy

    Myanmar is a Southeast Asian Country surrounded by Thailand, Laos, China, India, and Bangladesh. The almost 100 years old University of Yangon is the oldest Arts and Science University of Myanmar with 22 departments, located in Yangon, the previous capital. In 2010, Myanmar re-entered the global scene after 22 years of isolation. Since then the country performed steady economic growth by opening new opportunities to national and foreign investors and international donors.
    While Myanmar boasts the richness of water resources, spatial and temporal distribution of rainfall is highly uneven, resulting in water scarcity and diversification in a central dry zone. On the other hand flash floods in the Northern and Western areas and floods and salinization problems in the Ayarwaddy delta regions of Myanmar are taking place. Water management in Myanmar is scattered across ministries and departments resulting in overlap responsibilities in some sectors and neglected in others. My collaborative research with scientists from the Central-European University hopefully will fill the gaps related to water management issues and policies in Myanmar. A planned comparative study on Integrated Water Management and Water Policy between Myanmar and Hungary could be the basis for new policy enforcement and changes in Myanmar.

    Organized by Monywa University
    In collaboration with Chindwin River Basin Organization (RBO) with Financial Support from the Sagaing Regional Government

    This event is one of the Chindwin River Basin Organization (CRBO)'s awareness program. The Chindwin River Basin is very importance for biological diversity, hosting 11 key “biodiversity hotspots” and home for 38 globally threatened species (IUCN). Several faculty members and students of Monywa University were originally living along the Chindwin river. The aim of this campaign is to raise the awareness of Monywa University students and local people to understand better on how to conserve the Chindwin river basin and sustainable environment with the focus on valuing of ecosystem services and maintaining biodiversity in the river basin. Especially, local people will be able to understand and familiar to the meaning of biodiversity, ecosystem and ecosystem services and how to provide them.

    More Information will be coming soon.

    In this three day workshop for water professionals we will focus on using the remote sensing package Google Earth Engine for water related issues. The three main subjects of the training will be rainfall, river morphology and soil moisture. The subjects rainfall and river morphology will be discussed in parallel separate sessions. During this training you will learn how to work with satellite data using Google Earth Engine and will learn more about rainfall or river morphology and soil moisture. With this knowledge it will be easier to understand the processes behind rainfall, river morphology and soil moisture and adapt to the future.

    This training is implemented by companies FutureWater, HKV and VanderSat and organized in the framework of the “Leapfrogging Delta Management in Myanmar”, led by Delft University of Technology and supported by the Netherlands Government (RVO). The training is hosted by Yangon Technological University. To register for the training, please contact Gijs Simons of FutureWater through [email protected] and provide your name and affiliation.
