For those wishing to further their understanding of this defining issue of our age, SIWI offers an open online course. Participants are able to take the course free of charge or opt to receive a certificate of completion for $49 USD. 

Together with the United Nation’s SDG Academy, we’ve created a free on-line course with leading experts on water and sanitation services, the role of ecosystems, the impact of climate change, the role of water for food and energy production, as well as shared water resources as a potential source of both conflicts and cooperation.

The course brings you some of the world’s leading experts and practitioners and is aimed at development professionals, private sector actors, water activists and advanced students.
