CAS Water Sanitation and Hygiene for humanitarian and developing contexts

  • Codice
  • Presentazione
  • The course is designed to provide professionals with a thorough understanding of the increasing complexities of the WASH sector. It teaches students up-to-date contextual and technical skills to plan, design and implement sustainable WASH activities and programmes within the framework of the fundamental principles of the sector, namely public health and equitable access to water supply and sanitation services.
