In March 2017 AHT GROUP AG signed a contract with GIZ for the development of an IWRM Curriculum for the Public Administration Academy (APA) under the President of Uzbekistan. These services will be provided by two international experts within Component 1: "National policy framework for water governance and integrated water resources management and supply", implemented by GIZ within the EU funded program "Sustainable management of water resources in rural areas in Uzbekistan". The objective of the consulting services is to develop capacities on sustainable water resources management of future water policy makers on national, regional and executive level. To achieve this, the developed IWRM training modules will become an integral component within the Public Administration Master Programme of the APA. The services provided by AHT also include the preparation of material for a training-of-trainers course enabling Academy staff to undertake the IWRM training. The services are scheduled between March and September 2017.
