Waterways Centre for Freshwater Management

Permanent URI for this community

The Waterways Centre for Freshwater Management was established in 2009 as a joint partnership between Canterbury and Lincoln Universities. It has a range of research priority themes under which research is conducted by a multi-disciplinary group of approximately 50 academic staff members from both universities with expertise in freshwater issues. Their postgraduate students make up a large group of freshwater researchers. The Centre provides teaching courses and qualifications in water resource issues and their management, plus maintains strong links to existing water organisations and stakeholders in order to improve skills, knowledge, and awareness in the water sector.
