cewas Middle East, a Swiss-based organisation promoting sustainable practices in water and sanitation in the region, and BORDA-WesCA (The Bremen Overseas Research and Development Association’s West and Central Asia Regional Office) are pleased to announce a six-day online afternoon training workshop on Designing Sustainable Sanitation and Water Management (SSWM) Projects in Iraq between 7th-12th August 2021.
This training course builds on the SSWM Toolbox and the correspondent face-to-face trainings that were successfully completed by more than 750 participants in the Middle East, Europe, Asia, Africa and Latin America.
This training is specifically designed to support you and your organisation in conceptualising and designing a local SSWM intervention. The workshop uniquely incorporates theoretical learning and hands-on application of contents to a real-life SSWM project idea of yours. This online event enables you to fully exploit the benefits of the SSWM Toolbox and develop a thorough understanding of selected planning tools. The training applies a blended learning approach in which in-class time is used to explore topics in greater depth, collaborate in online discussions and create meaningful learning opportunities with the guidance of experts, while you are initially introduced to new topics outside of the classroom using pre-class videos and other types of self-study materials.
This training specifically targets organisations and institutions that work in the water and sanitation sector(s) in Iraq. Forthis particular training, only participants who register as a team of 4 – 5 people will be considered in the selection process. During the workshop, successful teams will work towards developing and setting-up their own sustainable sanitation, water and resource management project. Therefore, teams need to apply with a real-life water and sanitation project (idea) of their own in mind.
