Wastewater Management Training in the Pacific

A training course for wastewater management in the Pacific has been jointly developed by UNEP's Global Programme for Action for the Protection of the Marine Environment from Land-based Sources of Pollution (GPA/UNEP) and the UNESCO-IHE Institute for Water Education. The wastewater training course is addressing one of the Guiding Principles of the Pacific Wastewater Policy and Framework for Action and has been implemented in the Pacific region by a consortium of organizations (SOPAC, USP-IAS, IOI, in collaboration with SPREP, UNESCO-IHE, GPA/UNEP and UN/DOALOS).

The training is designed to provide participants with analytical tools, substantive information and skills on how to select, plan and finance appropriate and environmentally sound municipal wastewater management systems.

The training is divided into three modules: Objective oriented planning; Conventional and innovative approaches to municipal wastewater management; Presentation skills.

Among available materials is a Training Manual for Improving Municipal Wastewater Management in Coastal Cities.

A CD-ROM on Wastewater Technologies and Management for Pacific Islands has also been compiled which supplements existing training materials. Contents include a compendium of technologies appropriate for Pacific islands, a tutorial in Project Cycle Management to identify feasible solutions, three software tools to support decision-making, and a document library with 100 publications on management and technologies.

For further information on the wastewater training course, contact Robert Bechtloff at UNEP/GPA (r.bechtloff@unep.nl) or Kamal Khatri at the South Pacific Applied Geoscience Commission (kamal@sopac.org )
