Zimbabwe / Chinhoy, Gweru, Kadoma, Kariba: Water Loss Management Training
SaWa has been contracted by Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) to execute a specific water loss management training programme for several Urban Local Authorities (ULAs) and other involved stakeholders in Zimbabwe. A basic training was conducted for ULAs and also rural catchment staff. Ca. 100 trainees were involved in separate events. The two SaWa expert trainers conducted an advanced training for the partner ULAs namely Chinhoyi, Gweru, Kadoma and Kariba, involving specific application of measurement devices (ultrasonic flow meters, correlators, electro-acoustic leak detection equipment) and techniques in water balancing and loss reduction. Additional equipment has been procured under the project, and work will continue with the partner ULAs for tailor-made Non Revenue Water (NRW) Strategy development.
