South Asia Training Progamme in Bangladesh: December 12-15, 2010



CSE under its South Asia Programme organised a  training  on 'Decentralised wastewater treatment and reuse' between December 12-15, 2010 in partnership with  Water Aid Bangladesh. The training programme aimed at capacity building of the practitioners, academicians and Bangladesh Government officials in the area of decentralised wastewater treatment as well as site identification and providing technical assistance for implementation of model projects. These model projects could then be replicated to improve the water and sanitation status of the country.

The programme was held in the training centre of BRAC at Savar, near Dhaka. The four-day programme between 12-15 December comprised of technical sessions, field visit and practical sessions where the participants worked in groups on different project proposals involving design and costing of decentralised wastewater treatment system. Video films on the subject were used to showcase the successful DWWT projects implemented in India.
The workshop participants from across Bangladesh included practicing engineers, architects, academicians including participants from Government agencies like Dhaka Water Supply and Sewerage Authority (DWASA), Ministry of Housing and Public Works and Army.
