Description of the project: 

Since several years, the Water and Habitation Service of Red Cross and International Office for Water have a solid collaboration in the field of training and technical expertises of water and waste water infrastructures

Each year, National Training Centre of IOWater welcomes a group of ICRC Engineers from all the world (Burundi, Democratic Republic of Congo, Liberia, Thailand, Guinea Conakry, Rwanda, Eritrea, Ivory Coast, Soudan …) for enhancing their abilities about “Diagnosis of drinking water infrastructures”.

In addition, each year, National Training Centre of IOWater realises some training sessions abroad (Burundi, RD Congo …) for beneficiaries of Red Cross such as :

  • Design and operation of drinking water supply networks (Burundi),

  • Operation of drinking water treatment plants (Burundi, Democratic Republic of Congo …),

  • Maintenance of drinking treatment plants (Democratic Republic of Congo)

  • Optimisation of energy consumption in water services. Production of alternative energy (Democratic Republic of Congo)
