Professional Certificate in Strategic Water Planning
London UK


The Millennium Development Goal Target 7Cb - to halve the proportion of the population without sustainable access to safe drinking water and basic sanitation by 2015 - has shaped the priorities of the water sector since the turn of the century. As the United Nations finalises its post-2015 agenda, it estimates that the world will suffer approximately a 40% water shortfall by 2030. In consequence, sustainable water planning is being prioritised, building on previous international commitments, with a clear urgency. 

Course Overview

This week-long course will provide participants with critical insight analysis into issues prioritised by the new agenda when securing, planning and managing water supply systems.

The programme is designed to examine the key governance, planning and organisational themes highlighted to the international community, placing key importance on sustainability. Through discussions with leading practitioners, participants will examine vital topics including water cooperation, sanitation and reducing the risk of water-related disasters. Case studies will ensure knowledge of best practice can assist participants in developing their own strategies within the new global framework.

Upon completion of this programme and subsequent successful completion of CMI written tasks, the successful candidate will be awarded a Level 7 CMI certificate in Management & Leadership showing the CMI units achieved.
