Cross-sectional module: Capacity building

Capacity Development activities were carried out at various levels, ranging from the general public to the educational sector, water professionals and political/administrative decision-makers. Study tours to Germany were conducted for students, experts and stakeholders dealing with environmental education, decentralized waste water treatment and urban water management. In September 2011, several Mongolian government delegations visited project sites, including the Mongolian Minister of Nature, Environment and Tourism (and other ministerial representatives) as well as a high-level delegation from the Ministry of Roads, Transport, Construction and Urban Development. These delegations expressed a particular interest in a further dialogue regarding the potentials for a countrywide hydrological monitoring system, the issue of urban water management including sanitation, and the relevance of the results in the context of mining.
