YEP period 2016 - 2018, batch 8
Currently I work in Harare as Young Expert water supply for Vitens Evides International (VEI). Previously I worked in Bandung (Indonesia) in the same position within VEI.
Within the Harare project I support the Non-Revenue Water (NRW) activities in the pilot areas and on institutional scale. I also contribute to capacity building of the newly established hydraulic modelling and GIS departments. In my previous project my activities included extensive preparatory work on the creation of pilot areas for NRW reduction measures, extension of the network and building water kiosks in the less wealthy areas. Both projects focus on working closely together with the local water company to improve water supply.
