WeatherSmart: tailored course for CMAs
After the project visit to the management of Inkomati-Usuthu Catchment Management Agency (IUCMA) for preparing the project (see link), the overall programme was approved. This capacity development project, called TMT Weather Smart Water resource management, is funded by Nuffic. Based on the design, WWA made a detailed programme, which also included all the learning methods during the training. Based on this programme all project partners started the development of the course materials: Powerpoints, handouts and cases.
In the week of 5-9 February the first and second module will be delivered to new and unexperienced staff of the IUCMA. The group will be partly split in a ‘water quality’ and ‘water quantity’ group based on the department and training needs of each individual for 1,5 day. After this, both groups will join a special session where they will exchange their gained knowledge and skills to the other group.
A week later, WWA will organize a Training of Trainer programme for experiences staff members from IUCMA, but also other CMAs, to enable them to replicate the course for others. In the meantime, Hydrologoc will conduct a course for new staff on HydroNET.
