Students invited to join Okavango field course, Botswana

UNSW-GWI's Centre for Ecosystem Science is running a field course in Botswana on river basin ecosystem management, and interested students are invited to participate.

The River Basin Ecosystem Management course (BIOS6723) is run by UNSW, Arizona State University and Kings College London - all partners in the PLuS Alliance

The course uses Africa as a key case study and will focus on Botswana’s Okavango Delta—one  of the largest inland delta systems south of the equator and one of the few large free-flowing rivers of the world. 

The upper level course, designed as a third year course but coded so that it is available for post-graduate coursework students, is predominantly field-based. It addresses advanced concepts associated with river basin ecosystem conservation, management and governance challenges for rivers and their dependent large wetlands generally. 

Students and staff will be participating from UNSW, Arizona State University and Kings College London - providing a great opportunity to meet like-minded peers from within Australia and overseas.

Interested students are encouraged to apply ASAP as numbers must be finalised by 18 May 2018.
