Within the framework of the project “NEPAD African Centres of Excellence (CoEs) on Water Sciences and Technology (ACEWATER phase II)”, UNESCO implements activities to support the establishment of a Human Capacity Development programme in the water sector in Africa.

The Focus of the ACEWATER II Project is on:

1. Establishing National Human Capacity Development Programmes addressing junior and senior professional and technician level human capacity and skills challenges in the 13 participating AU-NEPAD CoE Countries;

2. Implementing the Human Capacity Development Programmes in these countries within three Regions in Africa, in collaboration with Government Authorities and relevant Higher Education and Technical Vocational Institutions to build capacity for sustainable development in the Water Sector.
