'Developing Partnerships in Practice' course
BPD's Developing Partnerships in Practice (DPP) course is designed for water and sanitation practitioners and policymakers and feeds into the organisation's broader capacity-building work. The overarching objectives of this partnership training are to:
- Increase awareness of available information and resources on partnerships in water and sanitation
- Build and develop practical partnering skills
- Support the application of skills and knowledge to current partnership challenges
The training has been held 11 times in East, West and Southern Africa, and has proved extremely popular with water and sanitation practitioners and policymakers. Comments from previous participants include "you INSPIRE me to move forward in the right direction... you've given me new ideas and renewed energy"; "the programme has helped me and my organisation to enter into partnerships with other stakeholders in the WASH sector"; and "I really enjoyed working with you all and have learned a lot".
