  • Environment and Water Governance Training Program
  • This program serves as a platform for exchanging experience and knowledge on water, environment and health between experts, scientists and researchers from different countries and backgrounds. The program provides a wide array of new approaches to water resources management based on green economic concepts and new green technologies, among others. The program develops a vision that helps to improve socio-economic well-being beyond current levels by moving to an integrated approach, including health and gender aspects. The participants benefit from experiences of other regions and different approaches to understanding constraints in water policy implementation. In addition, the program provides a unique chance to visit some of the Geneva-based international organizations and learn more about their role and their programs on water management.
