GIS and Statistical Analysis for WASH Programmes Course

INTRODUCTION

Water-related challenges in developing countries are not limited
to water supply and sanitation services. Water shortages experienced by users
across the region is plagued with chronic cycles of flooding and drought that
are increasing in frequency and severity, in part exacerbated by climate
change, and coupled with population growth, significant upland watershed
destruction, and non-equitable distributed of water resources.

There is the need in improving access to water, increasing
community capacity to manage and better use water resources, improving water
supply infrastructure in arid and semi-arid areas, improving water sanitation
and hygiene practices, as well as protecting watersheds.

REQUIREMENTS

The training is designed for participants who are reasonably
proficient in English.

DURATION
