IWC Masters scholarship recipient finds his passion in water management
For IWC Master of Integrated Water Management scholarship recipient, Cameron Munro, an integrated approach to water management is the only way to achieve sustainability.
"I believe that an ever-growing human population is leading to increasing competition for dwindling natural resources that will become increasingly vulnerable under a changing climate. The more I learn about water management issues, the more I have become aware of the fact that water security, energy security and food security are inextricably linked and that actions in one area more often than not have impacts on one or both of the others.
"In order to effectively manage water resources, there is a need to take a holistic and integrated approach that gives sufficient consideration of the environmental, political, social, cultural and economic impacts of decisions. I was attracted to the MIWM because of the transdisciplinary approach taken in the coursework, as well as the opportunity to learn from leading experts in the field. I am also excited about working with people from across the world who have an interest in sustainable water management."
