Water Resources Training Workshops
Explain your idea in details:
This project intends to act in a current scenario in which it is increasingly necessary to bring civil society closer to global development agendas. With the objective of promoting the Sustainable Development Goal 6, which aims to ensure the availability and sustainable management of water and sanitation, this project assists representatives of society through workshops. The project seeks to qualify Municipal Councils for Basic Sanitation in the region of the Médio Vale do Itajaí, southern Brazil. The region has approximately 780 thousand inhabitants, divided in fifhteen collegiate bodies denominated Municipal Councils of Basic Sanitation. Each council is located in a municipality of the same region. The solution proposed deals with the interconnection of the contents addressed in the fifhteen Councils, established in a single platform, in the form of an application, in which the population will have access to the discussions, as well as suggesting guidelines for future meetings.
Expected impact of your idea on sustainable development
The purpose of this project is to promote the Sustainable Development Goal 6 in a regionalised thinking, which specifies the actions that ensure the availability and sustainable management of water and sanitation for all by means of qualification to the Municipal Councils of Basic Sanitation in the region of the Médio Vale do Itajaí, southern Brazil. The region in implementation has approximately 780 thousand inhabitants, divided in fifhteen collegiate bodies denominated Municipal Councils of Basic Sanitation. Each council is located in a municipality of the same region. The concepts of participation and social control are among the growing yearnings of society, that is, increasingly the public sector is charged for greater transparency and participation in public management. The solution proposed with this project deals with the interconnection of the contents addressed in the fifhteen Basic Sanitation Councils, established in a single platform, in the form of an application, in which the population will have access to the discussions, as well as suggesting guidelines for future meetings. With a large-scale action, this solution promotes the institutionalization of SDG at the level it is implemented, as well as support for social control.
Plans for implementation and sustainability
The proposed business model with this solution is to add value to the way in which the relationship between public authority and civil society currently takes place. Between these two actors, the opportunity envisioned by this solution can be put into practice. It is understood here as a client, any citizen interested in knowing more about the actions related to basic sanitation, in particular, when it comes to water and sanitation, as recommended in SDG 6. Still as beneficiaries, citizens and their own counselors when they receive the training through the training workshops to understand the Council's attributions regarding the SDG 6. The product, that is, the final result of this solution is the society's involvement through the application that will gather the information shared by the boards in the platform where any interested party will have access. We are constantly looking for financial support and networking with people passionate about development, water and sanitation. In the financial area, sources of financing will be sought from the public authorities and other sources. The technical stage will be fulfilled with the appointment of the advisors to the definition of responsible person, in order to follow the growth of the demands with the expansion of the activities.
