Yihun Dile is a PhD student within the project ''Water Resources and Social-Ecological Resilience in Agricultural Landscapes''. The research links global environmental change, analyses of rainfall partitioning across scales and water governance and management strategies for improved water resilience.
The PhD project will combine resilience theory, catchment hydrology, and spatial water modeling, with analyses of water resource management in agriculture landscapes. The research will explore water induced social-ecological tipping-points, upstream-downstream water implications of intensified water resource use, and strategies for sustainable water management.
The research will combine empirical field research at catchment scale, with hydrological modeling and spatial analysis. This research will focus on a tropical river basin in Africa.
