Sustainable Water Sector Capacity Development (SWSCD)

 

The USAID/Albania Sustainable Water Sector Capacity Development (SWSCD) activity was created to build a platform for training in Albania and the Western Balkans to be an example of sustainable workforce development while contributing to the increased professionalism in delivery of the essential public services of water supply and wastewater treatment. 

USAID/Washington funded the Albanian Association of Water Supply Companies (SHUKALB) through USAID Cooperative Agreement (CA) No. AID-182-A-14-00001 to conduct the SWSCD Activity. The Activity started September 30, 2014 and finished at the end of March 2019, with total funding of $1,208,396. SWSCD supported the fulfillment of Mission Development Objective (DO) 1 “Strengthening the rule of law and improved governance” through intermediate results (IR) 1.3 “improved performance and management.” It also supported objective 4 of the Albanian Water Supply and Sewerage Services Sector Strategy (2011–2017), particularly Priority Action 4.a: “Establish a national program of training and certification, with training target requirements at all water utilities.” Fully in line with the stated sector priorities of the Government of Albania, as well as USAID’s development objectives, the objective of the SWSCD Activity was “to build a platform for training in Albania and the Western Balkans to be an example of sustainable workforce development while contributing to the increased professionalism in delivery of the essential public services of water supply and wastewater treatment.”
