Continuous capacity building is vital for securing sustainable development. NIRAS has specialised in planning, preparing and conducting international training programmes, courses, seminars and study tours on a wide range of topics.
Over the years, we have been assigned the task to organise a number of international training programmes for different stakeholders from developing countries and transition economies on behalf of Sida and Danida Fellowship Centre. Some examples are within Integrated Water Resources Management, Education for Sustainable Development, Integrated Sustainable Coastal Development, Human Rights, Peace and Security and Green Growth, Climate Change and Environmental Sustainability.
Participants represent both the private and public sector. Programmes are developed according to the needs of specific target/stakeholder groups and the client. Facilitators and lecturers include NIRAS in-house experts as well as relevant external experts and practitioners.
In our approach we emphasise strong dialogue with participant involvement through class room discussions, group work and exercises as well as site visits/excursions to ensure an inspiring; challenging and active learning environment.
At the moment we run international training programmes in the areas presented below.
