EU-finanzierte Masterarbeit an der Universität für Bodenkultur

Delineation of a micro-watershed and development of a management model in Menyamya, Papua New Guinea.

The research activity for this Master Thesis is done under the EU funded project „Strengthening food production capacity and the resilience to drought of vulnerable communities“. It is designed to contribute to achieving a greater resilience of smallholder farming and rural communities in Papua New Guinea to abiotic stresses arising from seasonal weather patterns, climate change or natural disasters. Through this research activity the student contributes to the participatory establishment of a micro-watershed management model in one of the target sites that assists in enhancing water capture and storage capacities and soil water conservation of the target communities to augment and manage agricultural and domestic water supply and use during dry periods following the MUS (Multiple Use System) approach.

Main objective of the work is the delineation of two micro-watersheds:

  • GPS/GIS reconnaissance survey (land and water)
  • Transect walks and village mapping
  • Recording of flow rates, water use scenarios and land use practices
  • Micro-watershed management model and scenario development
  • Participatory and learning centred methods for research and development.
  • The selected student will directly collaborate with NARI (National Agricultural Research Organisation) and other local counterparts.

Duration: March to June 2019, for a period of 4 months

Location: Menyamya, Morobe Province, Papua New Guinea.

Expenses: International travel costs and living expenses should be covered through KUWI outgoing actions. The student is expected to apply for this travel support through the Center for International Relations. Domestic travel costs and accommodation will be covered through the project.
