Centre for Science and Environment (CSE), a New Delhi based research and policy advocacy organization has been working on water issues since the early 80s. Ministry of Physical Planning and Works (MoPPW), Government of Nepal has signed a memorandum of understanding with CSE to undertake a series of capacity building programmes for its engineers in order to strengthen the understanding of  the engineers on techniques like rainwater harvesting and decentralised wastewater treatment and reuse. Harvesting rainwater can substantially increase the availability of water in where supplies are scarce and also become an economical and ecological benefit. Decentralised sewage treatment system including reuse and recycle is affordable and sustainable.  

CSE is organising the following training programmes in partnership with Ministry of Physical Planning and Works, Govt. of Nepal.

DECENTRALISED WASTEWATER TREATMENT AND REUSE: February 12-13, 2012
Two day programme will focus on decentralised wastewater treatment (DWWT) including recycling and reuse. The training will provide hand on experience in planning, designing implementation of DWWTS and monitoring interactive seminars, detailed case studies, class room instructions.

URBAN RAINWATER HARVESTING: February 14-15, 2012
Two day programme will focus on urban rainwater harvesting (RWH) and the potential it holds in augmentation of water availability by using public spaces to recharge their groundwater or store and reuse the rainwater. The training will also showcase examples to bring in required laws to enable individuals to undertake rainwater harvesting. The participants will get the opportunity to plan and design a rainwater harvesting system.
