DESCRIPTION

[OS-TP-77]

The lack of skilled professionals results in design faults or deficiencies in the way water infrastructures and collective services and utilities are managed, operated, maintained or renew. In every countries and sectors, such as basin management, drinking water and sanitation, energy, agriculture, inland navigation and others,  thousands of employees or individuals are concerned, the majority of them being of low educational level. It is vital to optimize investments and ensure their smooth operation: this means increasing skills based on lasting and better founded training programmes and organizations.  This session will present the best experiences within the DGIC that demonstrate the economic interest of training professionals.
