Capacity Development

Strengthening utilities in their efforts to provide efficient and sustainable services is a key focus of the Danube Water Program. The Program supports capacity development in complex managerial topics for which existing training and traditional ex-cathedra approaches are ill suited.

The capacity building approach was tested under phase 1 of the program and resulted finally in the establishment of the Danube Learning Partnership. To learn more about the D-LeaP's development and the programs tested under phase 1, explore the Development of D-LeaP.

Under phase 2 of the program , the national water utility associations are supported through a specific grant scheme related to Association Strengthening.

In phase 3, the Danube Water Program’s capacity development activities are focused on the capacity building programs delivered under the Danube Learning Partnership and the Benchmarking activities.
