The EFC has created the Literacy in Environment and Finance (LEAF) program, which educates students and community members on environmental finance and environmental services while promoting finance as a solution to achieving environmental protection, not as a barrier.
EFC Event: NCDENR Capacity Development Workshop for Public Water Supply Section Regional Staff
Managerial and Water System Capacity Development Resources, Tools, and Strategies with NC Public Water Supply Section
Hosted by: North Carolina Department of Environment and Natural Resources
Thursday, September 12, 2013 8:30am - 4:30pm
At the request of the Public Water Supply Section's Capacity Development Program leaders, the EFC presented to Public Water Supply Section Regional Staff members on tools, guidelines, documents, research and resources developed in past years in the North Carolina Water System Capacity Development Program Support project. The workshop was intended to introduce these resources to the NCDENR staff, explain how they may be used to assist in their tasks of assisting North Carolina's water systems, and gather feedback for improvements. The EFC presented on four topics and provided a quick overview of other resources. The four main topics included: water system interconnections, managerial capacity assessment, tips and guidelines for developing inter-local water agreements, and potential for shared management and non-structural partnerships of water systems in the state.
This workshop was conducted once in Raleigh, NC and once in Winston-Salem, NC.
