Training of Trainers (ToT) is a very important part of the Cap-Net mandate for Capacity Building and networking. The ToT on Conflict Resolution and Negotiation Skills for IWRM was held in August 1-5, 2005 in Dhaka, Bangladesh. The ToT course introduced conflict resolution and negotiation skills needed for proper implementation of IWRM. Negotiation for use of water has gained importance due to scarcity of resources. Efficient negotiation and equitable allocation of the resource is needed to avoid serious conflicts, for instance, between different water use sectors, between up-and downstream users, or between states sharing a transboundary water body. Skills are required in negotiation and conflict resolution, particularly for the water manager, who should play a mediating role between alternative, potentially conflicting uses and assure that mediation and negotiation are incorporated in water management practices.

The ToT program included participants and resource people from Europe, Asia, Africa and Latin America. Some of the participants also played the role of facilitators for specific sessions and they brought forward case studies of relevance to those particular topics. The participants were experienced trainers themselves with an interest in negotiation skills and conflict resolution in water management and the possibility through position or connection to take the training forward at the regional or country level. The five day workshop included technical sessions, breakout sessions, role-playing in conflict resolution, case-studies and field visit to areas of water use conflict.
