Human Resources Development (HRD) to support water Supply and Sanitation (WSS) sector activities in the country is an important element in the arena of development from national perspective. Primarily through an approach of skill transfer from all dimensions, with social, technical, financial, institutional front, etc. the International Training Network (ITN) Centre started its journey to attain the envisaged goal of capacity building in the WSS sector. The centre was established within BUET in November 1996 with funding support from Danida which started functioning in January 1997. Conceptually, ITN renders its services on a multiplier effect. It takes care of curricula and syllabi; produces master trainers; develops teaching and training materials; develop R&D skills in the sector relating to socio-economic context of the country, undertakes research and brings out publication to fill up knowledge gaps. The services that ITN provides to support the development of the WSS sector are unique in the sense that no other stakeholders are rendering services of this kind and level. Direct physical and financial interventions of ITN though very small but its multiplier effect and impact are very significant. The outputs of ITN centre make other stakeholders initiatives meaningful, effective, productive and sustainable. The government and NGOs, External Support Organizations, private sector, academic institutions often request for ITN's services. The ITN Centre has a special niche for capacity building in the WatSan sector. While the centre limits itself to training of key personnel of sector stakeholders through appropriate specialized courses, the benefit of the training activities will, in general, accrue to workers involved in community development and hygiene/ health promotion, NGO staff and women. The centre is motivated to identify the gaps in the sector and develop training packages including courses, modules and materials according to the sector need.

North Carolina State University's Global Water Sanitation and Hygiene (WaSH) faculty cluster led by Dr. Francis de los Reyes from the Department of Civil, Construction, and Environmental Engineering includes researchers from the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences, the College of Humanities and Social Sciences, and the College of Natural Resources. The goal of the Global WaSH cluster is to address water and sanitation issues by developing new technologies that are context sensitive, practical, and take advantage of developments in energy, environmental processes, materials science, data technologies, design and ecology. Advances in public health and environmental research are required in an interconnected world with increasing population and environmental pressures.

For more than 25 years, has made it our mission to bring water and sanitation to the world. Founded by Gary White and Matt Damon, we pioneer market-driven financial solutions to the global water crisis. works to facilitate universal access to water and sanitation through access to affordable financing, and it tackles this approach through multiple layers. At the grassroots level, we work with local financial partners to facilitate microloans for poor people to finance the toilet that they want or connect to a local water supply. At regional and national levels, we work with governments and the financial sector to ensure that institutional and/or policy barriers to financing for water and sanitation are removed. Finally, we engage at the global level to draw large-scale visibility to the need for innovative financing solutions to the water and sanitation crisis.
