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.
