This is the response to a DEWPoint helpdesk enquiry. A number of case
study examples on capacity building in the water, sanitation and hygiene
sectors, based on learning from Water, Engineering and Development
Centre (WEDC), are provided. These case studies cover: (1) Training in
equity and inclusion for engineers; (2) Research capacity development;
(3) Developing a quality multi-dimensional specialist WASH workforce;
(4) The disconnect between sector employers and sector education and
training institutions; (5) Networks as a model for capacity building and
knowledge sharing; and (6) Strategy and human resource development
This report was produced by DEW Point, a Resource Centre for
Environment, Water and Sanitation, that was funded by DFID and managed
by a consortium of companies led by Harewelle International Limited. The
Resource Centre closed in 2012.
