With almost 400,000 cases of Corona virus across the world many countries are in lock-down and it seems that it will still take some weeks for the number of new cases to plateau in Europe and in the US. Having this in mind we decided to stop all project activities that require bringing people together, including all project meetings and short-courses. The situation will be re-evaluated on a monthly basis. Our expectation is that this will lead to a delay in project activities of 3-6 months.
For more than a year we have been busy lecturing EAWAG‘s MOOC series “Sanitation, Water and Solid Waste for Development”, in parallel we also translated the course material into Portuguese. With three training sessions done and the translations now complete, we take the time to tell you about the whole process.
This was a very productive year at ZAMADZI and I’m now taking the opportunity to look back on our activities.

A few weeks back we had our first short-duration course which had as general objective to improve the technical and practical knowledge of the Mozambican ROs in food safety and water resources management.
