We are excited to announce our second offering of the Humanitarian Water Engineering Intensive Online Course starting this September!
The Humanitarian Water Engineering Intensive Course offers participants an opportunity to gain essential knowledge and skills on safe water supply in humanitarian emergencies. The course covers the theoretical fundamentals of, and practical considerations for, the design and operation of water supply systems in humanitarian response.
Over the course of twelve weeks this Autumn, participants will engage in a rich, multifaceted online learning experience consisting of lectures from experienced practitioners and engineering faculty, problem-based learning activities guided by talented facilitators, and curated readings.
Members of our inaugural 2021 cohort have gone on to start or advance in their careers as Water & Sanitation Specialists in the humanitarian sector.
The course will run from 7th September to 2nd December and applications can be made online until 31st August. To learn more about the course and what our past participants have to say, please visit our website hwe.dighr.org/
From the lesson and activities, I am surprised that health workers are ranked low with most participants not including them in the top seven touchpoints including for diseases settings. I would want to know why this is, as they are in the front line and I believe they have the needed information the public needs. could it be they are not doing enough community outreach, or they have not empowered? i.e. communication for development skills.
The potential to increase their viability as high-impact touchpoints is clear, how can we increase their impact as viable touchpoints in communities.
