Xavier University in collaboration with the Sustainable Sanitation and Water Resources Management Network Asia (SSWRMNA) and the Southeast Asia Rural Social Leadership Institute (SEARSOLIN) recently offered 2-week expert training courses on Sustainable Sanitation and Water Management (SSWM) complemented by 1-week SSWM ‘training of trainers’ courses.

The 2-week SSWM expert training course module gives an overview on Integrated Water Resources Management (IRWM), its basic concept and linkages to the reuse-oriented sustainable sanitation approach including a comprehensive overview on existing technology options and planning approaches. The course focuses on the human influence on the water cycle, the linkages to agriculture, and the sustainable use, treatment and reuse of water resources. It enables participants get a holistic view on the water cycle and to identify more sustainable and locally appropriate technology solutions in relation to sanitation and water resources management.

The 1-week training of trainers course module prior focuses on teaching methods and the design of target group oriented SSWM modules. It will enable participants to design and conduct their own SSWM courses utilizing the philosophy and principles of adult learning.
