Sida International Training Programme: Sustainable Urban Water and Sanitation-Integrated Processes

Deadline: 16 March 2018

The Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (Sida) is seeking applications for its International Training Programme, “Sustainable Urban Water and Sanitation – Integrated Processes” in order 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.


  • 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
  • Extended network

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 organisations should be willing to commit themselves to participation over several years and to cooperate with other organisations in the programme. Capacity and interest to drive change processes to achieve their long-term goals, and a certain level of influence on the water and sanitation sector, is a prerequisite to become a collaborative organisation. 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
  • be available and motivated for active participation through the whole training programme.
