Short Description


Despite the progress made thanks to the successive international agendas for development (Millenium Development Goals and Sustainable Development Goals), the statistics on global access to water and sanitation are still grim: 2.2 billion people do not have safely managed drinking water services, 4.2 billion people do not have safely managed sanitation services. Significant investments are made each year in an attempt to bridge this gap, and they often fall short of expectations as a result of either design faults in infrastructures or multiple deficiencies in the way these infrastructures are operated and maintained. In a time of strong budget constraints, it is therefore vital to address the increasing demand for skilled staff to optimize the investments made in both the big water cycle (for the management of rivers, lakes, aquifers) and the small water cycle (for the management of municipal water and sanitation services).
