Water Resources Management Capacity Building Programme (Water-CaB)

The domain of water is one of the important areas of cooperation identified by the OIC Member States for joint Islamic action under the OIC-2025 Programme of Action. The first Islamic Conference of Ministers Responsible for Water, which was held in Turkey in 2012, requested SESRIC to utilize its expertise to collect information about water-related needs and capacities of the OIC Member States and develop a web portal to disseminate this information to all Member States as well as to use this information in organizing and implementing training activities.

In this connection, SESRIC developed the Water Resources Management Capacity Building Programme (Water-CaB) with the aim of enhancing capacities of human resources in the OIC Member States in the domain of water. The Programme aims to play an active role in facilitating knowledge exchange, sharing of experience and best practices among the OIC Member States and thus contribute to the implementation of OIC Water Vision.
