The first phase of the project has rolled out and started on October 20, 2014 with the first training on Water Management Systems in Present and Future, followed by the second training on Stakeholder Engagement and Intervention Strategies, each lasted for one week. 15 Young Water Professionals (YWP) attended this first block of 2-week training seriously and actively, and showed that they were learning many new things, in relation to the course objectives. The evaluation showed they appreciated the content as well as the knowledge and skills of the trainers. 

The Stakeholder Engagement training included a half day field visit where the YWP practiced what they learned in the classroom by interviewing different types of stakeholders. This field day in the second week was highly appreciated. In the evaluation forms filled out by the participants at the end of the two weeks, the first training was rated 8.3 and the second 8.1 on a 10-point scale (1= very bad, 10 = very good). ms in Present and Future, followed by the second training on Stakeholder Engagement and Intervention Strategies, each lasted for one week. 15 Young Water Professionals (YWP) attended this first block of 2-week training seriously and actively, and showed that they were learning many new things, in relation to the course objectives.

Apart from the training for the YWP, on October 29-30, 2014, the project also conducted a training for the mentors in Bogor, attended by 8 mentors. The training was meant to fine tune the perception of the mentors on mentorship and provided them with the tools to conduct it effectively.
