Water Safety Plans in Pictures
Give children and local communities the knowledge to improve their own health and well-being
A Water Safety Plan (WSP) is a tool recommended by e.g. the World Health Organisation to involve local communities in understanding and improving water supply. The WSP is a risk assessment and risk management approach to water supply and sanitation. It can be summarised by the following good-house-keeping rules “spot the hazard, assess the risk and make the change”.
All possible contamination points and potentially contaminating activities in water supply and sanitation are identified and addressed. The final products – maps, reports, posters, safe water strategy – give the local community information on how to avoid risks of water pollution. WECF and its partners produce a tool that will enable local communities to climb higher on the water and sanitation ladder.
