Project objectives
The objective of this assignment was to develop a training of trainers who work in the water and sanitation sector of developing countries and to conduct trainings in Sudan, Croatia and Austria. Didactic methods had to be documented in form of a comprehensive trainer handbook.

Project description

The ability to train people is a crucial factor for successfully transferring knowledge in organisations, in specific programmes and projects. This is especially challenging in the water and sanitation sector having complex interactions with other sectors and therefore many different stakeholders involved. This training offered the possibility for people working in the water sector worldwide to strengthen their own training capacity and thus reduce the dependency on foreign trainers.

Project data

The training of trainers was embedded in various capacity development projects by the Austrian Red Cross in close colaboration with local Red Cross / Crescent Societies in Croatia and Sudan.

Project specifics

Highly participatory consultancy to develop a tailored and flexible training concept with great potential for replication.

Services
