2019: NERC DTP PhD programme

Blue Green urban adaptation framework for sustainable water future (co-supervised by Prof Mark Burgman, Centre for Environmental Policy)

The project will develop an adaptation framework that could allow a robust assessment of the Blue Green Infrastructure and other water management solutions in high-level decision-making. More information can be found here.

Deadline for the application: 8 Jan 2018
