The Project Management Unit (PMU) in collaboration with University of Nairobi organized a Regional Training of Trainers Workshop on Integrated Flood Management (IFM) which is within the framework of Phase II of IGAD-HYCOS Project aimed at strengthening the regional and national capacities in management of water resources. The workshop was held from 6th – 10th October 2014 at the Rosa Mystica Hotel in Nairobi, Kenya,  for five days including one day in the field. The workshop was designed to allow national experts from participating countries to be trained for the purpose of training other experts in their countries on Integrated Flood Management

The Workshop was attended by twenty(20) participants from nine (9) countries (Burundi, Djibouti, Ethiopia, Kenya, Rwanda, Somalia, South Sudan, Sudan and Uganda). The experts/resource persons from University of Nairobi, National Environmental Management Authority (NEMA), and Kenya Meteorological Services with the assistance of IGAD – HYCOS Project Management Unit experts (Project Manager, Hydrologist, Field Hydrologist, and IT Expert) conducted the training sessions. The workshop was well attended and this reflected the countries interest and commitment in the IGAD-HYCOS Project.  The workshop was officially opened by the Guest-of-Honour and World Meteorological Organization representative for Eastern and Southern Africa Region, Dr. Elijah Mukhala. The opening ceremony was also attended by the National Focal Point (NFP) for Kenya, Mr.Simintei Kooke, who gave positive remarks on the need to have training workshops related to IFM. The Report of the workshop and other materials are available at the following links.
