Training Material

The training materials of PCCP concentrate on the enhancement of skills for the successful management of transboundary water resources. They address a wide target audience, ranging from postgraduate students to high-level decision makers. 

Since 2001, PCCP has developed general training material as well as material adapted to the regional specificities of Africa, Latin America, Asia, Europe and the Middle East. Trainers from across the selected regions are involved in the development and delivery of the course material. The trainers come from a variety of fields to ensure the interdisciplinary nature of the course. Once the pilot phase of the training is complete, the course material is evaluated, improved and finalized. It is then distributed to local training institutions for further dissemination.
