Integrated Water Resource Management (IRWM) – Water Quality, Pollution and Treatment
Research Project , 2013 – 2017

The project IRWM – Water Quality, Pollution and Treatment is part of a collaboration with the Universidad Mayor de San Simon (UMSS, Bolivia) and Swedish Universities (Chalmers, Lund, Linköping). While the overall aim of the collaboration is to develop IRWM at UMSS, we focus on water quality aspects, looking at water use and management, pollution and treatment in rural, peri-urban and urban areas of the Rio Pucara watershed.
