Capacity Development in the Water Sector
How GTZ supports sustainable water management and sanitation
To improve water management, developing countries need comprehensive knowledge and capacities in dealing efficiently with water. Clearly, the people who use water and the organizations who manage the water sector need such capacities. But also of relevance is the enabling environment which, in the final analysis, determines the scope for action to develop the water sector. Improved water management, then, applies on a variety of levels. It is a holistic process through which people, organizations and societies continually mobilize, maintain, adapt and expand their ability to manage their own sustainable development. This is what is meant by 'capacity development'. This brochure will give examples from selected countries to illustrate how GTZ supports capacity development in the water sector.
