About the Course

Risk is an inherent part of any decision making process. Risk and uncertainty are unavoidable in the design, construction, and management of environmental and water resources systems. However, until recently, common way to account for risk and uncertainty in engineering design was through a factor of safety.

However, this does not provide any idea of the risk in a particular situation and most decision makers these days want to explicitly know the risk involved while making a decision as well as the risk of operating an existing system and the consequences of a management action. Answers to these questions require an understanding of the behavior of inputs to the system under study as well as the consequences of a management action.

Therefore, this course presents fundamental concepts of decision making regarding environmental and water resources systems under anthropogenic and climate changes which will help participants be better equipped to deal with uncertainty and make better decision.

Objectives

The primary objectives of the course are as follows:
i) Exposing participants to the fundamentals of decision making under uncertainty,
ii) Providing essentials of uncertainty and risk,
iii) Providing techniques for analyzing uncertainty,
iv) Presenting a unified framework for uncertainty analysis using information theory,
v) Presenting application of information theory to environmental and water resources systems, and
vi) Providing hands-on experience for use of information theory in environmental and water resources decision making.
