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: http://www.redr.org.in/training-services-training-calendar-and-fees. There is also a training package for HP in emergencies on the WASH cluster website: https://www.humanitarianresponse.info/ (server currently down) There is also an online Oxfam course on IEC: http://www.ecbproject.org/wash-e-learning-courses/wash-e-learning-courses

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: http://www.open.ac.uk/about/international-development/news/openwash-seminar Thanks for your response. As this network grows hopefully we will be able to unearth more of these types of resources!
