The Humanitarian Water Engineering (HWE) intensive course offers participants an opportunity to gain essential knowledge and skills on safe water supply in humanitarian emergencies. The course covers the design and operation of water supply systems in humanitarian response including source water selection, water quality, water treatment, distribution and the safe water chain, and outbreak preparedness and response.

A certificate will be offered to participants who successfully complete the course.
