Abstract: The advanced training course aims to deepen the knowledge of the participants on sustainable sanitation in the context of development cooperation. The training topics range from detailed information on sustainable sanitation technologies and -systems to non-technical accompanying measures and financing. During the course we introduce various tools/toolboxes and will discuss project examples with regard to “best practices” and “lessons learnt”.
- Sustainable sanitation technologies and -systems (Hardware)
- Non-technical accompanying measures and financing (Software)
- Project examples: "lessons learnt"
- Forums, online tools, capacity building materials
- Introduction selected hardware and software solutions
Following the seminar, participants will...
- deepen their knowledge of the various non-technical of technical sanitation solutions
- be able to use the acquired knowledge in practice
- know various online forums and knowledge platforms, to deepen their knowledge independently
Target audience: The ideal participants for this seminar are those already working in a development focused NGO and running projects in the field of sanitation in the developing world. The seminar can also benefit those interested in the topic and wanting to gain experience in the field of development and sanitation.

Our first follow-up seminar on "Sustainable Sanitary Solutions in Developing Countries" from 3rd-4th March in the BMZ in Berlin was a great success.
With the "advanced" participants we looked at sanitary technologies and systems as well as a broad portfolio of non-technological measures for projects in development co-operation.
A special thanks goes out to Claudia Wendland from Women in Europe for a Common Future (WECF) and her lecture on UDDTs (Urine Diverting Dehydrating Toilets).
We hope that participants will be able to apply their knowledge in the future and we thank you for your engagement and feedback during the seminar.
And we won't stop!
For everyone who was not able to mae it this time: further seminars are being planned (foundational as well as advanced levels). Stay tuned for further info!
