Suffering from long-standing conflicts, chronic water shortages and the consequences of climate change, the Middle East faces immense humanitarian needs, especially regarding water, sanitation and hygiene. These requirements are seen as one of the main priorities for most countries in the region. In Syria and Yemen, over 30 million people have been affected this year, as much of the local infrastructure has been damaged.
Making training programmes accessible in this region of the world is therefore a critically important issue. In order to address these needs, the German-Jordanian University, Action Against Hunger, a leading international NGO in this field, and Bioforce are launching the first humanitarian master’s in water, sanitation and hygiene (WaSH) in the Middle East. From next September, the future WaSH managers in these areas devastated by several years of conflict will contribute to the development of the operational capacity of humanitarian organisations.
