Integrated water resources managementThe purpose of the course is to train the participants on integrated water resources management (IWRM) concepts and applications. Integrated Water Resources Management is “a process which promotes the coordinated development and management of water, land and related resources, in order to maximize the resultant economic and social welfare in an equitable manner without compromising the sustainability of vital ecosystems”. The course will focus on the introduction of holistic approach to water management based on the Dublin principles of IWRM. The course is designed to support the Zambezi Valley Development Agency in fulfilling its strategy that includes the development of studies and strategies that promote economic and social development of the Zambezi River Basin in Mozambique.20ISPS, SongoSalomon18-22 March1st of March
Participatory management of water resourcesTBD20ISPS, SongoWageningen UniversityMay (tentative)TBD
HydrologyThe purpose of the course is to train the participants on hydrological aspects that are relevant for strategic water resources management. The course focus on practical hydrological aspects such as hydrology balance, estimating flows using statistical and empirical methods, and hydrological simulations. The course is designed to support the Zambezi Valley Development Agency in fulfilling its strategy that includes the development of studies and strategies that promote economic and social development of the Zambezi River Basin in Mozambique.20FENG, UniZambeze, ChimoioSalomon27-31 May1st of May
Fecal sludge managementThis course starts with an overview of what faecal sludge is and an introduces you to the engineering fundamentals and required information for the design and selection of technologies. Sanitation solutions are prone to failure if an integrated planning approach that includes stakeholder involvement and the development of appropriate institutional, management and financial arrangements is not implemented. The course therefore dedicates a complete week to presenting the full picture, in addition to technology, that needs to be considered for sustainable solutions. It concludes with a focus on current research and innovations in technologies, to provide an understanding of the most up-to-date options.20FCT, UniZambeze, BeiraTU Delft8-12 July1st of July
Water qualityThe purpose of the course is to train the participants on water quality monitoring aspects that are relevant for strategic water resources management. It includes aspects about water quality monitoring parameters and standards, field and laboratory analysis, data analysis and reporting, as well as planning water quality monitoring systems considering the local circumstances. The course is designed to support the Zambezi Valley Development Agency in fulfilling its strategy that includes the development of studies and strategies to promote economic and social development of the Zambezi River Basin in Mozambique.20FCA, UniZambeze, UlónguèSalomon22-26 July1st of July
