Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) plays a key role in not only promoting health among communities but also in improving the quality of life of individuals in the target communities. WASH programmes continue to face the challenge of sustainability especially in developing countries. Sustainability mechanisms focus on ensuring that the established WASH systems continue to function optimally over an extended period of time. Sustainability is multi-dimensional consisting of enabling factors, technical factors, community factors and environmental factors among others.
We have organized a training focusing on promoting sustainability of WASH interventions in target communities. The course will serve to contribute towards the realization of SDG 6 (Ensure availability and sustainable management of water and sanitation for all) and the concomitant targets.
To equip participants with knowledge and skills on sustainable management of WASH interventions in communities.
WASH programme staff of humanitarian and development agencies including project managers, officers, engineers, hygiene promoters and public health officers.
A combination of various adult-learning facilitation paradigms will be used including exploratory learning, group discussions, plenary brainstorming, facilitator’s input, case studies and video documentaries among others.
The training cost is US$ 550 and it covers the tuition fees, learning materials, certification, meals and refreshments at the training venue. Further information will be provided upon inquiry.
Accommodation will be arranged upon request by applicants. However, the charges will be borne by the individual participant.
