AGUASAN is an interdisciplinary Swiss Community of Practice (CoP) that brings together a broad range of specialists to promote wider and deeper understanding of key water and sanitation management issues in developing and transition countries. It builds on committed sector professionals from various specialised institutions involved in Swiss development cooperation, humanitarian aid and research. Since 1984, the CoP provides an exemplary, vibrant and most pertinent exchange platform and think-tank serving the water sector, and constitutes an essential link in the innovation and knowledge management strategy of the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC). Besides convening quarterly knowledge sharing events, every year members of the CoP organise an international AGUASAN Workshop in Switzerland.
The WMO HydroHub supports this year's 34th AGUASAN workshop by joining the Steering Committee. Throughout the week we will discuss data management, new technologies and improved services for decision-making together with water professionals from all over the world. The Steering Committee members will be present and guide participants to produce tengible outcomes in a creative workshop setting.
Applications are accepted until March 20th, 2018 in the online application form. The organizers sponsor five young water professionals this year!
