Groundwater Governance, Management and Climate Adaptation Learning Programme
The course is designed to support a process of change, inspiring the participants and their organisations while providing them with the tools and strategies necessary to drive change, action and learning towards sustainable use of the available groundwater resources in their respective countries. The programme will show that adhering to best practice in groundwater governance, management and climate adaptation is not just crucial to our environment; it is also crucial to ensure continuous security of supply and safe drinking water distribution in our communities.
The course consists of a blend of training approaches, including initial e-learning sessions (prior to travelling to Denmark), class-based teaching, exercises, case-based learning and action plan activities combined with a number of excursions to public authorities, research institutes, utilities, and private companies where technologies and practices addressing groundwater governance, management and climate adaptation are experienced firsthand. The learning content will take examples from both Danish and international cases of groundwater governance, management and climate adaptation. Developing an action plan is a central product of the programme, and is based on a challenge in the home organization. Due to the case-based action plan activities, participants will find will find that the course relates directly to the challenges they face in their home organisations, and provides the tools to solve them.
The course targets policy- and decisionmakers and technical staff from government, civil society, and private sector working within groundwater governance and management, climate adaptation, water distribution and environment. Two or more participants from each organisation are welcome, as it facilitates and strengthens the Action Plan work.
