Deadline: 10 May 2019
The Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (Sida) is seeking applications for its International Training Programme “Sustainable Urban Water and Sanitation – Integrated Processes” to contribute to improved planning and implementation of more sustainable urban water and sanitation services, where the rights, needs and demands of all citizens including those of marginalised groups are taken into account.
The term sustainability addresses environmental, social and economic long-term factors. Sustainability can be achieved only through an increased awareness of the need for integrated approaches and for long-term systems and by supporting key organisations in their processes for such a change.
The Programme is about 15 months and runs from August 2019 – October 2020.
- For the Participant
- 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 professional network
- For the Organisation
- Professional support for more sustainable and inclusive water and sanitation services
- Educated and encouraged staff that will help achieve their strategic goals
- Collaboration opportunities with various organisations, experts and agencies
The training programme consists of five compulsory phases. The evolution of an organisational Change Project (CP) constitutes a major role, binding all phases together.

- Authorities, institutions, universities, NGOs, water utilities or other private companies active in the water and sanitation sector may nominate candidates.
- The programme primarily targets 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 at 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.
