Training courses Middle East and North Africa

The region Middle East and North Africa (MENA) is a region under serious water stress. A new training programme on Integrated Water Resources Management (IWRM) addressed decision makers from the MENA region. Three eight-day pilot courses were organized from October until December 2009, in Cairo, Egypt.

The organizers of this training programme have been DUK, the UN-Water Decade Programme on Capacity Development and the German IHP/HWRP National Committee. The training programme was funded by the Federal Foreign Office of Germany.

The training programme offered a multi-perspective approach on practical aspects of IWRM policy making. Topics such as network management, teamrole management, project management or multi-stakeholder cooperation on water resources were covered. Good practice examples were shared and discussed. The training was provided by professional trainers with long-standing experience in this field.

The training programme was a contribution to two parallel UN Decades: the Decade “Water for Life” (2005–2015) and the Decade “Education for Sustainable Development” (2005–2014), as well as to UNESCO’s International Hydrological Programme.
