Train the Trainer - Ecosan Course, April 2008

“Capacity Building for Ecological Sanitation: The Ecosan Trainers of the Future”

This 9 day course contained training/lecture material, presentations and exercises on the topic of ecological sanitation in peri-urban areas in Cagayan de Oro (CDO), Philippines. The target group was trainers of ecological sanitation systems. The content of the course was based on the old EcoSan Curriculum of Seecon (and the 1001 partners such as GTZ, IWWA, TTZ, ESF etc.). Johannes Heeb and Martin Wafler (both from Seecon) have been holding the course in CDO. Additionally Robert Holmer (PUVeP), Ulrike Lipkow (local GTZ water program) and Gina Itchon (XU) have contributed to the success of the event.

Water and Sanitation in developing countries (Eawag/Sandec training tool)
The goal of Sandec’s Training Tool is capacity development in the sector of water and environmental sanitation by improvements in training and education of sanitary and environmental engineers in developing countries. Free access to well structured and comprehensive training material is therefore provided. The seven modules dealing with technologies and approaches in the water and sanitation sector are adapted to situations in developing countries. And the fact that technologies alone cannot solve the problems but must be based on the socio-cultural, economic and institutional context is explained in detail.
