JICA Training course on Water Quality Monitoring for Central Asia

We have started the said training course consigned by Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA).

Outline of the training course

It is targeted official environmental analysts, who are in charge of mainly surface water analysis. Purposes are not only to improve the reliability of their analytical routine works but also to contribute to utilize the result to the environmental policy.

In Central Asia, some organizations are still using old devices that have been installed since Soviet Union era, on the other hand, some others are facing the limit of analytical abilities due to lack of basic necessary devices. Observing this situation, we take these countries as in the transitional phase of development and modernization, then focus on 2 topics through the curriculum: how to maximize the utilization of current devices and providing the international trends in environmental monitoring. Thus, we encourage the training participants to have wider and perspective views on water monitoring issues.
