Wastewater Training Catalogue


The GIZ supported Wastewater Management Program (GIZ-WMP) has provided technical assistance to wastewater and drainage sector in Vietnam since 2005. The program works to strengthen sector capacity on three levels. At a national level, the program supports the Ministry of Construction in improving sector regulations and frameworks. At a provincial level, the program works with nine Provincial People&;s Committees and their departments to provide advisory services, and to facilitate the effective implementation of new sector policies. At the operational level, since 2005, the program provides training for wastewater and drainage utilities in nine provinces.

From 2015, Phase 4 of GIZ-WMP&;s training activities has focused on scaling up and institutionalization of the training program. To ensure training is available on a national scale for ALL water and sewerage service providers, GIZ-WMP works with the Vietnam Water Supply and Sewerage Association (VWSA), which offers training on a long-term and sustainable basis. The approach for sustainable capacity development is to support the training program via three pillars:

• Developing 11 training modules organized in 9 courses, which cover the institutional and organizational, financial and technical aspects of the sector.
• Training a pool of 27 national trainers who deliver 11 training modules in 9 courses.
• Supporting Vietnam Water Supply and Sewerage Association deliver training courses. Developing a training delivery scheme with a sustainability and demand based approach.

The targeted beneficiaries of the training program are staff, professionals and/ or individuals who need additional knowledge, and who generally work in the
wastewater and drainage sector.
