Course Description

The one-day learning event on “Climate resilience of humanitarian WASH services” has been newly developed as part of the strategic training portfolio of the German WASH Network with the support of the German Federal Foreign Office.

  • impart knowledge on the interrelationships between climate risks and humanitarian WASH services and illustrate this with practical examples,
  • inform about measures to improve climate resilience of WASH activities and
  • demonstrate how the climate perspective can be integrated as a cross-cutting issue in the development and implementation of WASH projects.

Target Group
