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
