WASH for Urban Low-Income Communities
This provides a list of courses and scholarships suitable for WASH practitioners from across the WASH sector.
WSUP/WEDC have developed a teaching resource on urban WASH that is now available online for free.
This is a masters-level professional training module called “Water and Sanitation for Urban Low-Income Communities”. It is primarily designed to give engineering masters students in low-income countries an overview of things they need to know in order to apply their technical skills in low-income communities.WSUP and WEDC are currently using it the training module in partnership with universities in Africa and Asia. It can be adapted to other teaching contexts.
Designed for classroom delivery, the materials cover over about 45 hours of contact time. It’s made up of 16 thematic units, and within each unit the materials comprise a Powerpoint presentation and Lecturer Notes outlining the unit’s aims and content, and guidance on how to deliver the content. Some units are flexible in content, to enable adaptation to local contexts.
It can be delivered as an off-the shelf package, or you might want to cut-and-paste parts of it into your own materials, or you might simply use it as guidance in developing other materials.
