2nd Online Impact Workshop cum Master Class on Capacity building initiative for Citywide Water and Sanitation Management

Date: January 21-22, 2021

Organised by School of Water and Waste at AAETI, Nimli (Rajasthan) India

Training is an investment for all involved: the learner and his/her organisation, the course developer, the trainer and the organisation sponsoring the training. Measuring the effectiveness of training efforts can both demonstrate the value of those resource investments and improve the quality of future training. Process evaluation and feedback during and at the end of each training focuses on how well the elements of the training were conducted, while outcome evaluation focuses on whether the training elicited desired results.

The School of Water and Waste (SWW), unit of Centre for Science and Environment (CSE) is a capacity building initiative that aims to establish policy principles, innovative technologies, and implementation strategies for city wide water and sanitation management, which lay the foundations for a water and waste-prudent society.

The first ‘Impact Workshop cum Master Class’ of alumni was held on 29-30th June and was an extremely successful event. This event showcased success stories shared by CSE Alumni – aiming how the CSE’s learnings have been translated into action.
