Water and Environmental Studies (WES)water top

WES is a nationally and internationally established centre for multi- and interdisciplinary research and education, where natural and cultural scientists collaborate in search for knowledge across the boundaries of traditional disciplines. The research covers a spectrum of environmental issues continuously examining its future role in facing new challenges. 




New PhD-student

We welcome Vladmir Cossio. He is a researcher at the Andean Center for Water Management and Water Use (Centro AGUA) – Mayor University of San Simon (UMSS), Cochabamba Bolivia. In the PhD project he will work in the topic of integration of equity and environmental issues in water management policy in Boliva.


New dissertation in Environmental Science

Sabine Henders will present her dissertation: To leak or not to leak? Land-Use Displacement and Carbon Leakage from Forest Conservation on March 27. Venue: Önnesjösalen, Campus Norrköping, at.10.15.
