Ronny Berndtsson

Senior Researcher

Ronny received his Ph.D. in water resources engineering from Lund University, Sweden, 1988, with the title: "Spatial hydrological processes in a water resources planning perspective: An investigation of rainfall and infiltration in Tunisia". At present, he works mainly in collaboration projects regarding water resources development and management in the Middle East. During the last few years he has participated in two large EU-funded research projects in the Middle East: HYDROMED - Program of research on hill reservoirs in the semiarid Mediterranean and SOWAMED - Network for the exchange of methodologies and expertise on sustainable water management and land husbandry in the Mediterranean.

Current research

At present, Ronny participates in the research project Hydropolitics, security, and international law together with Department of Political Science, Lund University.

Other research projects:

  • Suez Canal University, Egypt, Pollution reduction in Cairo urban water system,
  • Shiraz University, Iran, Artificial groundwater recharge in Southern Iran,
  • Damascus University, Syria, Improved water management using modelling approach,
  • Institut National de Recherche en génie rural, eaux et forêts, Tunisia, Erosion control to improve water management.
