In 2009, UNITAR (the United Nations Institute for Training and Research) developed an online course aimed at enhancing the capacity of local decision-makers and sanitation professionals to make the most enlightened decisions and investments in the area of urban sanitation. Additionally, it provides analytical tools to understand the financial and institutional framework of the sanitation sector, taking into account the needs of urban poor communities.
The course was UNITAR’s very first e-learning course! Since then, more than 400 courses have been uploaded to our online platform and successive course sessions have been conducted up to this date. However, in the light of recent developments in the sector, the course needs to be updated and further expanded to better reflect today’s challenges. UNITAR needs to hire the necessary experts to update the course, and is thus calling on the generous attention of potential donors to support our capacity-building efforts. Without your help, we will not be able to run this course any longer!
