POLI 252 - Water and Power

Cross-Listed as GEOG 252  and ENVI 252 
This course develops an interdisciplinary approach to studying water resources development, drawing from geography, anthropology, history, politics, hydrology, and civil engineering. With a focus on large river basins, the course examines historical and emerging challenges to the equitable and sustainable use of transboundary waters. After first exploring the American water development model, the course will examine the promulgation of this model in Africa, Asia, Latin America, and the Middle East. Dam development for irrigation, electricity, navigation, and flood protection will be discussed.   Prerequisite(s): ENVI 120 , ENVI 133 , or ENVI 232  Fall semester. (4 Credits)
