The first week of the Capacity Building Course for the African HYPOSO partner countries was carried out from 10 to 14 January 2022. Initially planned to be held in Uganda, the first part of the course had to be organised as online lectures (see photo below). It was coordinated by IHE Delft (Netherlands), supported in week 1 by project partner VDU (Lithuania).

The lectures included the topics Basics of hydropower exploitation, Hydropower systems, Dams and storage basin, Power waterways, Hydrology, Hydraulic design, GIS & HP potential, and Computer based tools for HPP resources. A positive side effect of the organisation as online lectures was, that more participants could benefit from them. The photo below shows the participants that gathered in a central venue in Uganda to follow the lectures. It was organised in the same way in Cameroon.
