Short-courses on participatory management of water and operation and maintenance of irrigation systems
The waters of the Zambezi river are shared among millions of people and enable daily life. However, sharing the Zambezi is complex and the river must be exploited in a sustainable way, with national and international agreements being fully respected. This can only be achieved if local populations, governments and the private sector have capacity to adequately manage their water.
Thus, ZAMADZI aims to capacitate the local populations, governments and the private sector in the Zambezi Valley to adequately manage their water. Part of this NUFFIC funded project are short-duration courses. Resilience, in collaboration with the WUR, will give short-courses about Participatory Management of Water Resource and Operation and Maintenance of Irrigation Systems. Resilience’ embedded knowledge of local irrigation and water management practices is reflected in the content of the course where academic knowledge sharing is alternated with assignments directly in the field. This way we contribute to capacity building of the Mozambican entities responsible for water management. More information of the course can be found on: https://zamadzi.net/capacity/short-courses/courses-2019/
Participatory Management of Water Resources focuses on management of water through WASH, IWRM and water in the agricultural sector. The cases endow participants with both the knowledge and skills to design effective forms of participation in water management and governance. The course about O&M of Irrigation systems will capacitate participants to implement and guide operation and maintenance of practices and stakeholders in existing and future irrigation system in the Zambezi Valley.
