CITYNET has historically offered a variety of training programs through partner and member organizations. Our training programs change year by year, depending on the needs and requests of our member cities and organizations.

PrintKuala Lumpur Regional Training Centre
The Kuala Lumpur Regional Training Centre (KLRTC), also known as CIFAL KL, is a joint initiative between UNITAR, UNDP, CITYNET, Veolia Environment and the City of Kuala Lumpur. Established in 2003 to promote the exchange of expertise in urban planning and environmental management, KLRTC helps city managers and practitioners across Asia and the Pacific address urban challenges through problem and case-based learning. Specializing in themes such as Integrated Urban Planning, Urban Infrastructure Financing and Sustainable Mobility, KLRTC programs facilitate the transfer of knowledge from one city to another, heighten the capacity of city officials to sustainably manage the urbanization process and support post workshop action planning.

With a minimum of three CITYNET-organized training programs per year, KLRTC is becoming an integral tool for urban stakeholders across the Asia-Pacific.

CITYNET/Yokohama Waterworks Training Program
Yokohama Waterworks Bureau (YWWB) and CITYNET work together for the annual CITYNET/Yokohama Waterworks Training Programmes, which invites water management participants from cities throughout Asia and Africa to learn from Yokohama’s expertise in this area for a period of two weeks in Yokohama. Participants attend daily workshops and seminars, visit facilities, and finally present action plans before heading back to their respective cities. In conjunction with CITYNET and Japanese International Cooperation Agency (JICA), the Post-AWAREE program integrated Environmental Education (EE) with water management improvement. Participating cities from Dhaka, Da Nang, Colombo, and Makati learned various methods and approaches, including rain/sky water harvesting, community-based management, techniques on EE, volunteerism on watershed, climate change mitigation and adaptation, and public/private possibilities. All graduated participants received the Certificate of Completion.
