SCOPE

In developing the water security training module, the individual consultant will undertake a dedicated study on relevant sections of KIWASH project documents and contextualize these with the relevant project output indicators, (whose achievement is pegged on the use of the training modules). The consultant will undertake a desk review of existing literature which will inform the design of the tailor-made and hybrid water security training modules for KIWASH. The modules will be in two versions: version one will be for policy level practitioners/ policy makers, and version two for community users.

· Assess the relevant assignment aspects contained in existing manuals, including but not limited to, the WHO Water Safety Manuals and the UNDP Disaster Risk Reduction Methodologies; and make specific recommendations on how these aspects will be incorporated into the WSTMs.

· Prepare and make a power point presentation to KIWASH management and submit a desk review report based on tasks (i), (ii) and (iii) above.

· On receipt of KIWASH approval to proceed, draft the training material development plan for the two WSTMs. The plan shall include, but not be limited to, materials overview/synopsis, features, content and training methodologies.

· Consult KIWASH management on a fortnightly basis, (and more frequently if required), in the course of drafting the WSTMs, on the suggested content and training methodologies in (v) above.
