Dear all,

a new Strategic Alliance for Water Loss Reduction has been launched in April 2012! GIZ, VAG and Sewerin have joined forces for a holistic approach to water loss reduction, that includes capacity development as well as technical implementation.

Based on the Guidelines for Water Loss Reduction, which can be downloaded via the project website (, training modules have been developed. The training offered by the Strategic Alliance is primarily geared towards executive staff of water utilities as well as operators of water distribution systems. Currently, the training program consists of three modules, which can be implemented either individually or as a 3-day in-house training, depending on the respective local conditions. Each module lasts approx. one day and consists of theoretical input as well as practical exercises. The following modules can be offered at this point in time:

Strategic Alliance Training Course: Water Loss Reduction

Module 1: Understanding water losses through a water balance
M1.3 Introduction to Water Loss Reduction
Developing a technical strategy for water loss reduction (incl. the calculation of a water balance)
Performance Indicators

Module 2: Information systems and hydraulic modelling for water loss reduction
M2.1 Information systems for water loss reduction
M2.2 District metered areas (DMAs) / hydraulic modelling
M2.3 Measurement campaigns for water loss reduction

Module 3: Methods and instruments for water loss reduction
M3.1 Introduction to water loss reduction – methods and instruments
M3.2 Pressure management

A separate module on leak detection (M3.3) is currently being developed. Depending on the specific needs of interested water utilities, training on systems and equipment before their installation as well as on-the-job-training or coaching can be arranged. Trainings can be conducted in English (in the near future also in French and Spanish) either in Germany or in your respective countries.

The next training will take place in Mannheim, Germany from November 27-29, 2012. For a minimum of 20 participants, this 3-day training by two international trainers will cost approx. 800 € per participant, excluding board and lodging. If you are interested in participating, please contact us via e-mail for more details, stating your training preferences and background. Please feel free to forward this information.

For trainings taking place in your respective countries, we can offer an additional information event for decision makers. Furthermore, the Strategic Alliance can conduct Training of Trainer-courses upon request, as we are also striving towards creating a trainer pool and anchoring our trainings at regional / local training institutions. If you are interested in receiving further information, please do not hesitate to contact us via

With best regards,

the Strategic Alliance-team
