Solar Water Pumping Seminar for NGOs // Water Solutions for Developing Countries - Building the Next Generation (North America)
This event is designed to help NGO and government decision makers, municipal water service providers, engineers, capacity builders and fund raisers to understand more about how solar water pumping solutions are changing the lives of millions of people around the world. The content is a mixture of information sharing, workshop activities and practical demonstrations of what can be achieved.
The workshop and training session is appropriate for both emergency relief and community development focused staff. We will look at topics such as wide area water supply, water payment solutions, sustainable irrigation and scaling projects to reach mass markets.
The workshop is organised by LORENTZ, one of the leading manufacturers of solar-powered water pumps. The content is built on LORENTZ global experience of commercial and aid driven projects.
