Conclusion of the RDM (Resource Directed Measures) Masters course curriculum
Expanded Title:The major concern in South Africa at the time was the lack of appropriately-qualified individuals with sufficient experience to implement the provisions of the National Water Act, 1998 (NWA), in order to ensure the achievement of integrated water resources management (IWRM). New concepts were introduced such as Reserve and Classification that existing practitioners had to familiarise themselves with before they could implement it in terms of licensing requirements. Inadequate and fragmented implementation of transfer of knowledge and capacity has the potential to hinder endeavours to manage water resources in ways that address issues of equity, sustainability and efficiency, and contribute to social and economic development and the eradication of poverty. The MS curriculum developed provides several study options to students in various participating universities.
