There is very little training available outside of specific organisations as far as I know.

RedR India used to run courses for working in emergencies but there don't seem to be any scheduled currently. See their website: There is also a training package for HP in emergencies on the WASH cluster website: (server currently down) There is also an online Oxfam course on IEC:

There is quite a lot of crossover between emergencies and development - same principles apply of listening and involving communities.

Thanks Suze, yes much as I expected. I am aware of all of these for the humanitarian sector but had a feeling there is a bit of a dearth of options in the development side of things. We are busy working with Open University and others to try develop sector wide open education resources for WASH - OpenWASH but this will be a way off yet, see here: Thanks for your response. As this network grows hopefully we will be able to unearth more of these types of resources!
