Vocational education

IHP will aim to maintain and expand the training of technicians in water-related fields, such as hydrometeorological monitoring, irrigation systems, sanitation, and water supply systems. An important component of this focal area will be to survey and prepare case studies with examples of leading practices in sustainable integrated water management for the training of water technicians. 

Objectives

  • Support specific initiatives in developing Member States to sustain and improve water-related vocational education. 
  • Survey, prepare and analyze case studies of examples of leading practices in sustainable water management in the training of water technicians and support the preparation of guidelines and briefing papers based on them. 
  • Develop efforts within UNESCO and in partnership with other UN system agencies and programmes to maintain and expand the training of technicians in water-related fields.
