It is widely believed that solar powered solutions will play a critical role in achieving the ambitious UN Sustainable Development Goals, particularly those related to rural water supply. However, unless solar-powered water systems (SPWS) are implemented and supported effectively, the benefits of the technology will not be realized and existing challenges will only be amplified.
This online instructor-led course aims to address common misconceptions regarding SPWS, raise awareness and increase utilization of existing standards and reference materials, and ultimately improve sustainability and impact of SPWS.
The course is for professionals with technical and non-technical backgrounds who are involved, or considering involvement, in planning, managing, or monitoring water supply programs that utilize solar-powered pumps. The course will take place between September 16 and November 3, 2019. Interested participants may apply online until August 16.
