Water obtains its fundamental importance from its life giving characteristic. Through its close relationship with health, food security, energy, environment and economy, water is the most important basic resource. Access to water and basic sanitation are, in accordance with the 2010 UN General Assembly resolution, an essential human right. However, this fundamental right is not accessible to a large portion of the world’s population. Sustainable solutions for efficient and resource saving management are therefore needed. A key factor for this is the qualification of skilled professionals. AQWA Academy offers a training program for water sector professionals, which aims to make a contribution to the improvement of the water situation in the most arid region of the world.

Welcome to AQWA Academy
The AQWA Academy
Access to clean drinking water and basic sanitary infrastructure is a fundamental human right as declared by the United Nations General Assembly. Water is a vital yet limited resource. Therefore, water management must consider the entire water cycle, taking social, ecological and economic factors equally into account, in order to enable the sustainable use of water.
The AQWA Academy is an educational initiative from the German water sector, with partners from academia and research as well as industry, and supported by the German Ministry for Education and Research.
AQWA Academy provides urgently needed know-how for planning, construction, operation, maintenance, refurbishment and management of water infrastructure for regions most affected by water shortage and climate change, i.e. the MENA countries where the sustainable management of precious water resources is imperative. Therefore, the programme’s primary goal is to contribute to water quality, its longterm availability and responsible use through education and training of specialist personnel, which in turn contributes to peace and stability in the region.
