Human-Water Systems: Lessons For and From River Basins of the Muslim World

This seminar series will explore the coevolution of water and society through time. By tracking advances in technology, adaptation to climate, and the pursuit of justice, time, power and wisdom in various thoughts, the series aims to foster interdisciplinary approaches to Human-Water Systems. Using examples from river systems around the world, it will illustrate the importance of understanding human behaviour towards sustainable water resource management. The series will use examples and case studies of river basins such as the Nile, Indus and Mesopotamia, which host Muslim societies. It will draw on published literature and the speaker’s own work that uses systems analysis, earth systems modelling, data science and engineering.

The seminars will be given by Dr Abubakr Muhammad, Director, Centre for Water Informatics & Technology, LUMS, Pakistan, and STEMS Visiting Fellow at the Oxford Centre for Islamic Studies.

The following seminars will take place on the Thursdays listed below during Trinity Term 2024 at the Oxford Centre for Islamic Studies, Marston Road, at 5.15 pm.
