                       Surveying Training                             ADCP Discharge Measurement

Within the IGAD-HYCOS Capacity Development Programme, the Project Management Unit (PMU) in collaboration with Directorate of Water Resource Management in Uganda organized a Regional Training of Trainers Workshop on Installation, Operation and Maintenance of Hydrological Monitoring Network. The workshop was organized in Entebbe, Uganda for five days including one day in the field. It was held from 1st September to the 5th September 2014 at Central Inn Hotel in Entebbe. The workshop was designed to allow national experts from participating countries to be trained for training the technicians in their countries on the installation, operation and maintenance of IGAD-HYCOS hydrological equipment and observation network in their country.

The Workshop was attended by twenty five (25) participants from nine (9) countries (Burundi, Djibouti, Ethiopia, Kenya, Rwanda, Somalia, South Sudan, Sudan and Uganda). The IGAD – HYCOS Project Management Unit experts (Project Manager, Hydrologist and Field Hydrologist) and an International consultant with the assistance of National experts from the Ugandan Directorate of Water Resources Management conducted the training sessions. The attendees with 100% mark reflected the countries interest in the IGAD-HYCOS Project and their commitment to make it a success.  It was officially opened by the Guest of Honour and Uganda Government Representative, Mrs Florence Adongo, Ag Director of the Directorate of Water Resources Management. The Report of the workshop and other materials are available in the following links.
