This intervention aims to strengthen the partnership between Engineers Without Borders Denmark (EWB-DK) and Pensioners Union Trust of Zimbabwe (PUTZ). With the aim to facilitate sectoral knowledge sharing and exchange of experiences between EWB-DK’s technical volunteers and partners in the Global South, EWB-DK wishes to facilitate a knowledge sharing workshop and exchange of field based experience focusing on the WASH sector, and further strengthen the partnership with PUTZ and other relevant WASH stakeholders for improving water and sanitation conditions in local communities in Zimbabwe. The partnership will be developed in accordance with EWB-DK’s strategy for 2015 – 2020 and in line with the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDG), setting the agenda for how to work for sustainable development by involving citizens and stakeholders in fighting poverty. The intervention will: • Facilitate knowledge sharing and capacity development in relation to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG), the Zimbabwean context and the technical area of community-based WASH • Establish a shared field-based understanding of working approaches, local needs and contextual working conditions for future projects • Map and assess capacities of relevant stakeholders, communities and other actors at local and provincial level EWB-DK has a strong focus on local knowledge and capacities and the team will therefore apply participatory methodologies and ask into existing capacities, mobilization and local solutions. The meetings will underpin future cooperation and the dialogue and interaction will in itself be informative and potentially transformative for PUTZ, the EWB-DK team, the community members and the different local stakeholders.
