Information Products and Services
IRC provides news about developments and forthcoming events in the water sector. IRC also offers public access to a huge bank of information and interactive tools, including a question and answer service, to help you find what you are looking for.
Training is a key element in broader capacity development in the Water, Sanitation and Hygiene sector. As of 2012 IRC's business plan provides for renewed investment in training provision. As well as regular training and workshops we are also offering online training courses. The online courses are available at http://moodle.ircwash.org/.
This section contains materials and training packages for various IRC courses. For more information you can also contact us at email@example.com.
Over the years IRC has (co-)published more than 100 books, pamphlets and papers on key water and sanitation topics. New titles are added on a regular basis. An increasing number of these are available online, free of charge. This includes the series of Thematic Overview Papers (TOPs), which combine recent experiences, expert opinions and foreseeable trends with links to the most informative publications, websites and research information.
The InterWATER Thesaurus can be used for indexing information; for searching or retrieving information; and as a translation tool for English, French and Spanish water and sanitation terms.
InterWATER offers information about more than 650 organisations and networks in the water supply and sanitation sector, related to developing countries. Each organisation has a short description, contact details, e-mail and website address, and related sites where applicable.
Please note: we are not able to check the information on a regular basis. If you would like to have your contact details updated, please let us know.

KnowledgePoint is a collaborative helpdesk service currently developed by a core group of organisations: WaterAid, Practical Action, RedR, EngineerAid and IRC International Water and Sanitation Centre. The KnowledgePoint initiative has won grants from the Humanitarian Innovation Fund (HIF) to develop and pilot the service.
This page provides updates on KnowledgePoint and links to selected web resources.
The IRC webinars are an initiative from the IRC team working on innovations in WASH. This team seeks to enhance learning and sharing of lessons on innovations in the WASH sector. Monthly lunch meetings are organised for IRC staff and broadcasted via the web so that others can follow, or download the presentation and discussion.
