Online Impact Workshop cum Master Class

On Capacity building initiative for Citywide Water and Sanitation Management


This event is now completed

Organised by School of Water and Waste, 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. For details:

This ‘Impact Workshop cum Master Class’ was part of series of its measures used for evaluation and assessments as core strategy to achieve higher outcomes of the capacity building interventions.
