UNINE - Water and Sanitation Engineering from Emergency Towards Development - March 2020

The main objective of this course is to train qualified and motivated engineers and scientists who are active (or intending to become active) in the wash-sector in humanitarian contexts. The participants should be able, at the end of the course, to plan, implement and monitor water and sanitation emergency programs and design an emergency response in the context of a humanitarian operations as well as to better understand the institutional context of humanitarian situations.

The training covers a wide range of technical aspects required to efficiently handle emergency situations with approaches aiming towards development. The training thereby facilitates integration of engineers and scientists in humanitarian operations and makes the participants aware of the close links between public health, water and sanitation in disaster-stricken populations.

The course is designed for engineers and scientists interested in a humanitarian engagement in the domain of water and sanitation.
