Impact of corona virus pandemic on project activities

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.

Short courses in 2019

Throughout 2019 we trained dozens of staff from the project Requesting Organizations in our short-duration course program and, as promised in the previous post, I am now taking the opportunity to discuss it in more detail.

Cooperation with EAWAG in the short-course program

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. 

Recap of the last three months

For the past few months we have been quite busy here at ZAMADZI preparing all the activities planned for 2019 and supporting the ongoing ones. I am now taking the opportunity to update you on the last developments.

The year in retrospective

This was a very productive year at ZAMADZI and I’m now taking the opportunity to look back on our activities.
