RWSN (Rural Water Supply Network) Mentorship programme for young professionals

Starting your career in the rural water sector can be intimidating, and it can be difficult to know which direction to take and how to achieve your professional ambitions. Mentorship presents the opportunity for young professionals or students to exchange with more senior professionals in the water sector in order to progress more rapidly, and to learn from each other.In 2019, RWSN is launching a mentorship scheme, aimed at matching young professionals under the age of 35 with more senior professionals in the rural water sector. The aim of this scheme is to help develop the new generation of water experts in the rural water sector, and to ensure the knowledge and experience acquired by senior members of the community is not lost.

Interested in being a mentor or a mentee? Please fill out the interest form by 1 February 2019, and feel free to contact the RWSN Secretariat for more information (see website for more information).

Free Webinar on "From vision to action: how water utilities are building climate resilience (Part 1)"

Resilience is more than implementing the right technology or practice to assess and address risks of extreme events. It is an approach that should be part of a coherent and holistic strategy to ensure sustainable water resources and safe and secure water supply.

This webinar will demonstrate through practical cases from North America, the way in which water utilities are responding to climate change impacts to ensure safe and secure water supply. This can be through a variety of approaches including risk management mechanisms (such as Water Safety Plans – see previous webinar), which can direct utilities to strategies such as source protection, diversification of water supplies and use of early warning systems.

Learning Objectives

Participants will be able to:

• Learn about best practices utilities are applying to build resilience to climate change hazards and risks.

• Apply a process to identify resilience strategies,

• Draw from the experiences presented to assist the development of plans to respond to their climate hazards and risks.

Tariff Setting Methodology For Water Supply And Sewerage Services In BIH

The main objective of this document is to develop draft tariff setting methodology for water supply and sewage services in Bosnia and Herzegovina. The methodology defines such tariffs so as to enable recovery of all costs, including operating and investment maintenance costs, as well as capital investments costs, if so decided. This methodology also includes detailed guidelines for developing a business plan containing the selected key performance indicators as well as instructions for their calculating. Business plan includes detailed plans for improving financial and operating performance, while the methodology also provides guidelines for this purpose. Key performance indicators selected in one business period have to be projected for the entire planning period, as well as values achieved in the previous period compared with the earlier projected ones, and clearly justified why these values are not the same if there is a difference between them. At the same time, the proposed draft methodology does not require modifications of the respective legally regulated competencies.

Study on the best administrative positioning of the Regulatory Body in the process of tariff setting of communal affairs of water supply and wastewater collection and treatment services

This document proposes mechanisms to setup a new regualtory framework for water services in BiH. The introduction of a new regulatory framework for tariff setting of services into the legislation should clearly define both obligations and responsibilities of all participants in the performance of communal services: lawmaker, local self-governance unit as the most responsible factor in provision of high-quality and efficient performance of communal services, public utilities and other companies –communal services providers and communal services beneficiaries – households and legal entities. After the necessary amendments to the utilities laws, which will regulate the establishment of a new regulatory framework for tariff setting of services, are adopted there must be a consistent implementation of laws followed by appropriate administrative and expert supervision by relevant administration bodies (Entities, Cantons, local self-governance units).
