Aiming at building the capacities of water stakeholders at different governance levels in the Middle East and North Africa region in order to improve transparency and accountability practices in water resources management, the regional Water Integrity Capacity Building Programme for the MENA region organized a Training of Trainers workshop on December 1-5 in Tunis, Tunisia.
The programme is implementing by the UNDP Water Governance Facility (WGF) at SIWI in collaboration with Integrity Action, Global Water Partnership - Mediterranean, International Union for Conservation of Nature – Regional Office for West Asia (IUCN ROWA) in Jordan, Palestine, Lebanon, Morocco and Tunisia in cooperation with national partners in each country.
In 2014 National Water Integrity Assessments for each of the target countries have been carried out by the national partners to identify water integrity risks and capacity needs for water stakeholders. In 2015 and 2016, national trainings and regional alumni workshops along with a mentorship programme will be conducted in collaboration with the consortium partners.
Therefore, the Training of Trainers workshop trained different trainers from Jordan, Palestine, Lebanon, Morocco and Tunisia on how to run trainings on specific occasions in the field of water integrity and management and provide mentorship to the people they train. They will act as both trainers in their respective countries as well as mentors.
The trainers will be part of a national network of integrity trainers which will support the national partners in each country in implementing the national trainings and advocacy workshop. This will also be a network of mentors which will support the national partners in following up with the people who get trained especially in the implementation of their action plans.
