The Overall Objective of the Project is to bring together and strengthen the cooperation between companies and higher education institutions through the development of courses in climate change impacts, with adabtive learning and teaching methods. HEIs are not highly engaged to the larger society that can lead to graduates less desirable by enterprises and companies. This can be alleviated by establishing truly collaborative relationship between HEIs and enterprises. The enterprise involvement should be active and proactive. WaSec will also strengthen the collaboration among the countries of the region by providing courses that could be adobted and implemented by all countries in the region. Students from differenct countries of the region will have the chance to interact with each other through the virtual courses. Courses will utilize new learning methods and pedagogical approaches that would intrigue the interest of younger generations. Finally the ability to practice distance-Learning will assist students, particularly from rural areas of the region.
