This paper presents the case for the Training for Real (TFR) project that was implemented by WEDC in Uganda from January 2005 to March 2006, with funding from the UK Department for International Development. The project aimed at motivating HRD and training providers to be responsive to the demands of employers so that professional development of water and sanitation sector staff is relevant to the needs of employers .To achieve its objectives, the project organized forum meeting to facilitate dialogue between the Higher Institutions of learning and employers, carried out research studies to establish the current training and capacity building activities and courses conducted in the HEIs, piloted alternative learning interventions, conducted needs assessments in areas of interest to the stakeholders, and provided support in information and knowledge management. Arising from the outcome of the project, the stakeholders have recognized a need to develop a training and capacity building strategy and institutionalize the TFR principles in the water and sanitation sector in Uganda, with further support of WEDC.
