Certificates to be delivered for the Arabic-language LWSAP course
Within the framework of the “Sustainable Use of Transboundary Water Resources and Water Security Management” (WATER SUM) project, funded by the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (Sida), the set of activities related to the Local Water Security Action Planning (LWSAP) course in the Arabic language on the Distance Learning Platform (DLP) have been completed successfully.
The course, which made its English-language debut in April 2016, has been well received by project participants in Jordan and Tunisia.
In December 2016, an Arabic-language LWSAP course was opened to all interested participants coming from Jordan and Tunisia, as well as to participants who did not successfully complete the assessment questions in the English version of the course. The Arabic-language LWSAP course was available through February 28, 2017.
The materials, presentations and assessment questions on the e-learning course were translated from English into Arabic, making it more easily accessible to students from Jordan and Tunisia.
Approximately 40 new students joined from municipalities that are participating in the WATER SUM project. The pilot municipalities participating in the project are (from Jordan) Al-Karak, Jerash, Al-Salt, and Ajloun; and (from Tunisia) Nefza, Bir Mcherga, Matmata, and Sidi Ben Aoun.
The outstanding students who completed the course successfully will be awarded with an official certificate acknowledging their achievement.
Students that completed the assessment questions from the LWSAP course in English have expressed great satisfaction with the course material, noting that they find it a useful tool that can be applied usefully in their respective fields of work.
