Thanks to the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development, 120 Afghan engineers completed skills enhancement course for designing infrastructure projects

120 Afghan engineers from six northern provinces of Afghanistan completed a course to enhance their drawing and designing skills for infrastructure projects. The engineers are now able to read and use building codes in all infrastructure areas. Their deepened knowledge will improve the execution of various infrastructure projects in Afghanistan. The German government provided technical and financial support for the training at a cost of AFN 1.5 million. The course was designed for engineers who have experience and knowledge in engineering and construction works already. The participants came from various line departments in Badakhshan, Baghlan, Balkh, Kunduz, Samangan and Takhar provinces. In the training, they were familiarized with designing documents recommended by Afghan ministries. An engineer who attendted the course from Baghlan province while expressing his gratitude to the program “I am now much more familiar with design principles in line with our government’s technical requirements.” The syllabus was tailored to meet the needs of the departments of Economy, Rural Rehabilitation and Development, Education, Public Works, Agriculture, Energy and Water Supply, and the River Basin Agencies. However, the 120 engineers were not only introduced to different theoretical concepts; they were also offered practical, hands-on exercises. They worked in groups and discussed government design standards for roads and school buildings. In a second step they had to work out which parts met their requirements and which elements needed adjustment due to local conditions. During the exercises, participants refreshed and enhanced their ability to read and interpret infrastructure drawings and designs. These hand-on experiences also increased the engineers’ understanding for common problems in infrastructure works and how to address them. In addition, the engineers discussed safety issues at construction sites. Their awareness for the need to consider threats such as fire or earthquakes in their plans has increased. The RIDF programme is funded by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) through KfW Development Bank and contracted to the joint venture of Grontmij‐GOPA‐INTEGRATION for rolling out the programme.
