Training of Trainers on Integrated Urban River Basin Management (IURBM)

Malaysian Capacity Development Network for Sustainable Water Management (MyCDNet) is pleased to announce that it will be hosting the Training of Trainers (TOT) on Integrated Urban River Basin Management (IURBM) on 23 & 24 April 2019 in JPS Ampang, Kuala Lumpur.

This TOT takes on a field based approach to training and sensitising river management practitioners to real life and real time issues of urban river management. The chosen urban river basin for training will be the Sungai Batu Basin, a tributary of Sungai Gombak.

This real-life concept is that every urban river basin must be looked at individually in terms of management strategies, based on their particular blends of attributes and issues. For example, we see how the urbanisation of the Sg Batu Basin through commercial, residential, industrial, recreational development, and the development of services, amenities and infrastructure that has made this river basin, the type of urban basin it is today. This real-time perspective will draw on the experiences, challenges, trials, and tribulations in implementing the River of Life Public Outreach Programme today in the 21st century.

This training course is a collaborative programme between MyCDNet, a partner network of Cap-Net UNDP, and the River of Life Public Outreach Programme in particular Phases 3B&4 (ROLPOP3B&4) to capacity build local authorities, professionals, developers, civil societies, heritage and cultural groups, and the general public to create awareness on river management issues and river care. Day 1 will be a full-day field training course devoted to observe and note the different attributes of Sungai Batu Basin and the issues/benefits to the river. Day 2 will be a half-day workshop in Dewan Melati in JPS Ampang.
