Education and research platform of the Geneva Water Hub


Education and research platform of the Geneva Water Hub 

The activities of the Geneva Water Hub’s Education and Knowledge platform contribute to a better understanding of the challenges of water governance. Supported by the Swiss Confederation’s Global Programme Water Initiatives, this platform is part of the Institute for Environmental Sciences (ISE) of the University of Geneva, and collaborates with the Platform for international water law. Follow this link and meet the team.

The Geneva Water Hub's Education and Knowledge platform is articulated around two interacting axis:

  • The Geneva Water Hub produces and shares a range of educational resources dedicated to improving the understanding of issues related to water governance. Here you will find resources drawn from a wide range of disciplines in a variety of formats - from Policy Briefs to MOOCs (on-line courses).
    All our educational resources are grounded in science, but are intended for and accessible to a wide audience. This platform is designed for anyone who is interested in water issues. Whether you are a student or a scientist, working with water at an operational or a political level, there will be something for you.

  • The platform also seeks to gather new information on the analysis of both the institutional and political aspect of water governance and hydropolitics. The Geneva Water Hub is establishing a scientific network which will focus on the latest thinking and developments in this field. This network will review existing concepts and frameworks and determine how these can best influence the future of water governance. The findings from this ongoing scientific debate will be captured in a multitude of formats – articles published in specialised literature, books, policy notes or case studies. All material  will be available on this platform.

We encourage you to use and share the Hub’s resources widely. If you have any requests or remarks, the team at Geneva Water Hub would be happy to hear from you. All the latest news of our activities can also be found on  the following social media:
