Water For People and our partners fund largescale water infrastructure development in Malawi, Rwanda, and Uganda. These include pumped and gravity-fed piped schemes and boreholes – some of which cost more than USD 1 million per project. Managing these largescale projects brings with it significant financial, reputational, and technical challenges and risks. We use a combination of internal engineers and contract managers (including those employed by our partners) and externally contracted firms to supervise and manage the construction contracts. We have so far managed to do these well, but we believe that the increasing size and complexity of these projects exposes us to greater risks. We would like to manage these risks by upgrading our construction project management skills through a short-term training delivered by a highly experienced construction project manager.
