Sida International Training Programme: Sustainable Urban Water and Sanitation

Deadline: 31 March 2017

The Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (Sida) is seeking applicants for its International Training Programme, “Sustainable Urban Water and Sanitation – Integrated Processes” to contribute to planning and implementation of  better sustainable urban water and sanitation services, where the rights, needs and demands of  all citizens, including those of marginalised groups, are taken into account.

Priority Themes

  • Framing sustainable urban water and sanitation
  • Integrated citywide approaches
  • Sustainable solutions
  • The Change Agent

Benefits

  • Increased knowledge of methods and tools for planning of sustainable urban water and sanitation systems
  • Increased capacity to initiate and drive organisational change processes
  • Shared experiences from colleagues in other parts of the world

Eligibility Criteria

  • Candidates may be nominated by authorities, institutions, universities, NGOs, water utilities or other private companies active in the water and sanitation sector.
  • The programme is primarily targeting organisations, not individuals, and efforts will be made to establish long-term relationships with key organisations. Such collaborative organizations should be willing to commit themselves to participation over several years and to cooperate with other organizations in the programme.

Candidates from collaborative organisations may be prioritised.
  • Applicants to the programme should:
    • hold a key position in their organisation, with influence on a strategic level;
    • have the engagement and power to initiate and drive change processes;
    • hold a relevant academic degree; and
