November 7, 2016 — November 8, 2016 | Addis Ababa, Ethiopia
Location: UNHCR Office
The International Organization on Migration (IOM) and UNHCR will host a training workshop on the use of solar technology in water supply and irrigation projects, including technical design and economic appraisal of water schemes, on the 7th and 8th of November 2016 in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.
The training is mainly designed for water, sanitations, and hygiene (WASH) technicians and coordinators -- from both humanitarian and development organizations. Its objective is to provide the basic knowledge and tools for WASH technicians to be able to assess the possibility of using solar technology for powering existing or new water supply schemes, in order to bring down recurrent maintenance costs and ensure long term sustainability. It intends to look at both, the technical aspect of dimensioning solar pumping stations and the life cycle cost analysis of different energy supply options in order to allow technical teams to make informed energy-related decisions for their water supply and irrigation projects.
This event is not open to more participants, but those wishing to learn more may contact IOM's Global Solar & Water Initiative team at at firstname.lastname@example.org.
