The topics of the working sessions and field visits were identified as a result of an exercise on needs assessment organised together with AMAC which is based on the methodology of the National Programme on Capacity Building of WSS operators organised by ICTWSS.
In addition, the managers of the companies, the management and trainers from ICTWSS will learn from Romanian experience how to organise and efficiently manage training centres focusing on the training needs assessment approach, training methods, scope of training curriculum and coherent monitoring of trainings’ efficiency.
The visit will, also, include sharing experience with the regional operator Apa Canal Cahul SA as regards regionalisation of water supply and sanitation public service by registering a regional operator and implementing an investment project at the water treatment plant modernised with the support of the Modernisation of Local Public Services in the Republic Moldova (MLPS) project implemented by German Development Cooperation through GIZ.
The event is organised by AMAC in cooperation with Human Resources and Social Dialogue Commission of Romanian Water Association (RWA) with MLPS support.
