In order to be able to develop national capacities in the Middle East, but to some extend globally as well, the German Jordanian University (GJU), Action Against Hunger, and Bioforce, in partnership with UNICEF and the Global WASH Cluster and other humanitarian organization, has started a WASH Masters’ Degree program in February 2021. The aim of this Masters is to build capacities of local WASH specialists and help them provide the necessary human capital needed to deal with the region’s response to humanitarian crises, while increasing the interest of future potential specialists to enter the field. This WASH Masters’ degree is a result of several years of work within water, sanitation and hygiene in humanitarian context across the region. The one and a half year academic programme entails two semesters of theoretical education at GJU, a semester of practical internship in a humanitarian organisation, and a final semester to complete the Master’s thesis.
