Training Courses on Sustainable Sanitation and Water Management

Executive Summary

In addition to this Toolbox, there are regular training courses that build on the SSWM Toolbox and aim at linking up sustainable sanitation, water management and agriculture at the local level and in practice. They are run in cooperation between Ecosan Services Foundation (ESF), India, the Environment and Public Health Organisation (ENPHO), Nepal, Xavier University, The Philippines, Capacity Development for Sustainable Water Resource Management (Cap-Net), SARAR Transformación, Mexico and seecon international gmbh, Switzerland.
