Waternet students at HOORC
Six students from Mozambique, Tanzania, Uganda, and Zimbabwe began a two month course at HOORC this month. The course, sponsored by the Waternet programme, will build the participants' understanding of agricultural water management, wetlands ecology and management and planning for droughts and floods. WaterNet, together with Cap-Net and GWP-SA, are supporting the Global Water Partnership Country Water Partnerships in an initiative to build capacity at national level to enable the development of national IWRM plans (as part of the implementation of the World Summit on Sustainable Development plan of action on water). The WaterNet professional training programme facilitates competency training to meet the needs of SADC, Country Water Partnerships, River Basin Organisations, Community Based Organisations, and various actors and practicing professionals in the water and related sectors.
