NIRAS is managing the International Training Programme on Sustainable Urban Water and Sanitation (SUWAS) - Integrated Processes.

These programmes are comprehensive capacity building interventions with the overarching objective to contribute to planning and implementation of better and sustainable urban water and sanitation services, where the rights, needs and demands of all citizens, including those of marginalised groups, are taken into account. They are implemented by NIRAS Indevelop in cooperation with WaterAid.
