One of the objectives of the NeWater project was to develop a holistic set of training courses including training material to support the dissemination of knowledge, concepts and tools necessary for the successful implementation of adaptive water management (AWM). The tools selected to support training are based on existing tools that have been enhanced within the project, as well as newly developed ones. The training courses and training materials for practitioners are based on the requirements of the NeWater case studies. The provision of a large number of thematic courses relevant for implementation of AWM-related activities provides practitioners with the opportunity to tailor training programmes according to their specific needs and the stage at which they are currently working within the AWM cycle (see Chapter 2.4). An overview and the selection of courses and training material can be found within the AWM section of the NeWater portal (
