E-Learning course on Sector Governance and Urban Sanitation

Joint project with United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (ESCAP)

UNITAR and ESCAP’s Poverty and Development Division are developing an on-line course on “Sector Governance and Urban Sanitation”, targeted to Asian developing countries. The course consists of 4 modules: Introduction, Institutional arrangement, Finance and Poverty, and will be launched early next year. After a pilot course for about 30 participants from the Asia-Pacific region, UNITAR and ESCAP are planning to organize a Train-the-Trainers face-to-face workshop for the 20 graduates from the pilot course, who will later become facilitators of the on-line course.

The course will be developed in the English language, but later to be translated into Indonesian and Chinese Mandarin for deployment in Indonesia and China.
