The project "Water Management in the Philippines Innovates (WPI)" aims to initiate innovation processes in vocational education and training to promote the transition to a demand-oriented vocational education system in the Philippines'water supply system. WPI utilizes strategic innovation management as a lever for upgrading staff capabilities in the area of water management.
The challenge of ensuring resilient drinking water supply for the growing population of Bacolod City is the WPI's pilot case. In cooperation with the Association of Negros Producers (ANP), the Technical Education and Skills Development Authority(TESDA) and the Bacolod City Water District (BACIWA), the project team facilitates innovation processes on two levels. An innovative mix of water and innovation management elements ensures that participants gain access to additional practical and theoritical skills needed to address the complex challenges of ensuring a resilient drinking water supply. The promotion of a supply-oriented innovation process is strategic. Vocational curriculum in the water management sector are developed or upgraded and long-term cooperation structures between leading German knowledge-holders as well as key stakeholders from the Philippines are established.
This approach ensures that current and future water management staff in the Philippines are equipped with the capabilities needed to independently find solutions to future challenges in an increasingly dynamic environment.
The project WPI resulted in a modular training on public water management.
