Professional Capacity THE WASH SECTOR

The academic level of the water professionals must be considered relatively high. Out of 22 professionals a majority hold Masters or Ph.D. degrees.

Most of the professional staff feel well acquainted with WRC basics such as the

Water Policy, the legislation, the mandates of WRC itself and the IWRM concepts

Other professional issues like water allocation, trans-boundary water resources management, participatory approaches, and gender mainstreaming need upgraded for some.

Administrative skills such as project management, reporting and financial management skills are clearly low rated by some staff members.
