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.

Candidates from collaborative organisations may be prioritised.
