    Placement Opportunity in Cambodia / Vanuatu

    We are looking to recruit for a joint placement with EWB Australia focusing on Sanitation in Challenging Environments.  A quarter of Cambodia’s population live in more challenging geographical and environmental conditions such as regions prone to flooding, ground water contamination and hard rock areas, where conventional sanitation designs have proven unsuccessful. Sanitation solutions in Challenging Environments (SCE) has been identified as a niche area of need in the WASH sector. In 2014, Engineers Without Borders Australia, in collaboration with partner organisations in Cambodia, began the SCE initiative to promote knowledge sharing, mobilise sector actors, build capacity of implementing partners and drive innovation to contribute to WASH sector program effectiveness to achieve sanitation access in challenging environments.

    Dialogues On Development 2016

    Engineers Without Borders brings to you Dialogues on Development, an education programme in Samoa.  This programme offers all participants a first-hand experience of community development processes in rural Samoa. Small voluntary community organisations are creating change and hope in the lives of many people. Participants in the programme are encouraged to learn from the experience of these organisations in order to build a deeper understanding of the role that technology and engineering play in community development and change processes. Participants are then encouraged to apply what they have learned from this experience in their everyday lives and work after they return to New Zealand.

    Please see our Dialogues on Development page for further information, costs and details of how to apply.
