Capacity Building

USPCASW is broadening perspectives and enhancing the capability of water professionals in Pakistan. The project will establish USPCASW, MUET as the hub for international exchanges and training on water in Pakistan. The central element of the exchanges and training program will be the Peer Teacher Partnering (PTP) program to link USPCASW, UU faculty with USPCASW, MUET faculty to support the design and delivery of courses. Many of the training programs that are translational will be designed as train the trainer programs such that MUET personnel and students can carry on training at MUET with support from USPCASW, UU.
