Room 25

DESCRIPTION

[OS-TP-78] Achieving SDG n°6 will require an intense infrastructure development effort in many water related sectors, such as basin management, drinking water and sanitation, energy, agriculture, inland navigation and others. Such effort cannot be made without an equally important improvement of vocational training for the staff entrusted with the design, operation and maintenance of these infrastructures. However, there is a lack of training facilities that need to be addressed with the creation, development and strengthening of specialized training centers and programmes. This session will showcase best practices on how to create and develop dedicated water training centers and toolkits.
