International Symposium and Exhibition on Capacity Development for The Water Sector

Organised by: AguaJaring, ASPEC, and MyCDNet

AguaJaring, a regional Southeast Asian capacity building network, together with MyCDNet (a Malaysian country chapter of the capacity building network), both within the Cap-Net UNDP family, will be organising a 2-day International Symposium on Capacity Development for the Water Sector. This is in conjunction with the soft launch of the International Symposium that will be held in 2023 in Kuala Lumpur. The Symposium will be focusing on the need for capacity development in the water sector in order to achieve the wider water security goals, with emphasis on the importance of competency certifications as a way forward. It is hoped that this event will bring together all prominent and leading water sector players, educators, as well as key stakeholders in the Southeast Asian (SEA) region.
