Transboundary Water Management (TWM): intorduces participants to some of the tools and approaches used in promoting regional development through cooperation over shared water.
10 Target Groups Mid-career professionals whose work is either impacted by water management decisions or who have an impact on them, Over time there has been a shift to including more people outside of the formal water sector e.g. transpport, health, energy etc, Various groups incl: national and local government, regional and international organisations, river basin organisations, NGOs, CBOs, media, private sector and academia, Close to 700 participants since 2005.
11 Approach to CB Participant-centered linking with their job activities; through an Individual Project, Facilitate peer-to-peer knowledge exchange, Introduce participants to a wide range of possible solutions - not just one approach, Use many hands-on and interactive activities field trips, panel discussions, group excercises, role-play etc, Always collaborate with a local partner organisation letting them assume more responsibility over time, Guiding principle is that water, if properly managed, can be an avenue for peace, cooperation and development within and between countries.
