In 2016, Aix-Marseille University (AMU), the French national research institute for sustainable development (IRD) (in French only) and Agence française de développement (AFD) inititated the label of the “international campus for development”, a new summer schools programme on the role of scientists and the contribution of science to achieving the Sustainable development goals (SDGs).
The 2nd sustainable development summer school (in French only) will take place in Marseille from 2 to 7 July next, where it will welcome 250 participants. It will be focused on SDG 13, relating to the fight against climate change, and its links with the other SDGs:
- public health, the issue of epidemiological risks, emerging diseases, and methods for the organisation of healthcare systems;
- water resources and changes in the hydrological cycle, degradation of access to water, and methods of governance for sustainable management;
- the Mediterannean space and the issues of the various scales of governance, especially faced with the evolution of climate hazards and natural risks, as well as the challenge of sustainable urbanisation.
Three different training courses, each subdivided into three modules will be offered. Thomas Le Jeune, drinking water and sanitation programmes manager with GRET, together with Philippe Roudier (research manager at AFD), will coordinate the module entitled “Territorial management and sharing of water resources: anticipating climate changes” (in French only) in the “Management and sharing of water resources and climate change” (in French only) training course.
