Re: SuSanA Capacity Development Working Group meeting at Stockholm WWW 2016, Tuesday 30 August from 14.00- 15.30h

Dear Dorothee

Quite impressed by the upcoming session and it is timely and relevant indeed,few comments though as a professional in the water sector:
What skills and knowledge will the water workforce of 2025 need?

clear definitions of the terms in the water sector for the non technical players to realize that water is a wide field and distinction need to be clarified i.e "water resources engineer" is a different field from "water resources persons" "environmental engineer" is different from " environmental science person" just like "public health (environmental) engineer" is different from "public health (environmental) person"
hence the need for the players in the sector to get the right persons for the correct task as when we talk of the skills and knowledge then where it's application matter for it to be relevant.

How do we attract people to work in the water sector and ensure they have the needed capacities to contribute to the future needs of the water sector?

kindly specify the divisions in the water sector, then from the divisions we can get the roles. on job training for students in colleges.

How do we develop/enhance the capacity of existing practitioners?

online learning for short courses is a good thing and such forums for learning exchange.

How do we engage and retain professionals who are working in the sector to contribute to the implementation of the SDG6?

Learning exchange forums.

with thanks,
B. N

Re: SuSanA Capacity Development Working Group meeting at Stockholm WWW 2016, Tuesday 30 August from 14.00- 15.30h

Dear Bertha

Thank you very much for your contribution.
Could you tell us more about you?
Who are you and where are you working?

We at seecon also made the experience, that specifying the capacity needs and then seek specifically for profiles which potentially fits those is key for effectively identifying gaps and develop new capacities. These matchmaking activities have also the advantage of reveal hidden capacities.

It would be interesting to know more about your experiences specifically regarding this first comment in your post ("the need for the players in the sector to get the right persons")?

And...Will you be able to attend the WG1 meeting in Stockholm?

Cheers, Dorothee

I am writing for a suggestion to add Social & cultural barrier in the way of sustainable sanitation development in developing nation.

Re: SuSanA Capacity Development Working Group meeting at Stockholm WWW 2016, Tuesday 30 August from 14.00- 15.30h

Dear Dorothee,

I hope this mail finds you well. Greetings from Kenya. To introduce myself, am a water & environmental engineer with over ten years in WASH infrastructure and programming with masters in project planning &management and environmental health engineering from university of Nairobi. Currently am a WASH Program Manager for Sustainable Africa an organization working in 15 counties in Kenya promoting access to water and sanitation for schools and communities through promotion of rainwater harvesting by roof catchment; rock catchment; sand dams; weirs;earth dams and sanitation with hygiene promotion & MHM activities.

To clarify your query on ("the need for the players in the sector to get the right persons")? i meant that in WASH project a big part of the budget goes to infrastructure development and the need for organizations to have engineers manage them from baseline to feasibility through design construction supervision and commission should be given a consideration and of interest if the next goals have to be met and not just relegated to technical duties alone. From experience, I have seen many WASH project in developing countries not functional as they are not working or meeting the demand for the need. A simple reason,could be not well done feasibility study to determine the demand for the need for a projected future use. hence factors like future populations not factored hence failure of the project and wastage of resources. With this and among other reasons, like leaking masonry tanks not holding water; collapsing latrines within a year of construction calls for more focused capacity development with sharing experience of what works, why it worked, what can be done better on methodologies and approaches across the different organizations in infrastructure development and sustainable service delivery.

I am sorry will not be able to attend the WG1 meeting in Stockholm but hope to follow up the discussion online from your reports.

Keep up the good works.
Cheers,
Bertha

Re: SuSanA Capacity Development Working Group meeting at Stockholm WWW 2016, Tuesday 30 August from 14.00- 15.30h

Dear Dorothee,

I look forward to attending the WG 1 meeting! One of the main topics I would like us to discuss is how best to continuously build the capacity of water sector professionals and private sector service providers (e.g.registered emptiers).

I think we need a hashtag for this event so that we can tweet about it to those who will be unable to attend.

Best regards,

Doreen

I am sure your topic will be discussed in the second half of the meeting!
Great idea for twittering.
What about
- StockholmWWW_WG1meeting
- StockholmWWW_CapDev
- CapDev_SDG
Any better suggestion? sorry I am not a twitter pro...
What is the official SuSanA meeting hastag? We could build on this one...

The official SuSanA meeting hashtag is #22susana . We could use #22susanaCapDev What do you think?
