A1-HRD (Asian Waterworks Utilities Network of Human Resources Development)

What is A1-HRD

 A1-HRD, officially called Asian Waterworks Utilities Network of Human Resources Development, is an initiative launched in 2007 by the Bureau of Waterworks, Tokyo Metropolitan Government.

 The initiative helps to bring waterworks utilities in Asian cities together to exchange information and knowhow on personnel development, with the aim of contributing to the increase of waterworks skill levels throughout Asia. Our abbreviated name (A1-HRD) comes from the first letter of each word (A WUN HRD). As the pronunciation of WUN is similar the number 1, we have used the abbreviated name A1-HRD.

 The name also includes a concept of becoming "No.1 in Asia through a personnel development network!"
