International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC)

Publié : Février 2012

 2001 - 2011 : 10 years of collaboration between the ICRC and IOWater

In 2001 the first students of the ICRC’s Water-Habitat Department (Wathab) came to attend training courses of the FNWTC in Limoges.


In 2002, collaboration was confirmed with a tailor-made training course for analyzing the drinking water supply infrastructures, which required the intervention of 7 permanent IOWater trainers, each specialist in his field (drinking water, network, pumping, maintenance, electricity, etc.).


In addition, technical audits and diagnostics were carried out in Guinea, Congo Democratic Republic, Burundi and soon in Sudan.


Always rooted in a logic of actions complementary to the ICRC expertise, these interventions also allowed the IOWater trainers better understanding the local context and specific constraints encountered by the ICRC-Wathab delegates.


Finally, targeted training courses were carried out in several sub-Saharan African countries.


In May 2011, the training course organized and financed by ICRC was addressed to 18 technicians from the Water Company of Guinea on the maintenance of pumping stations.
