Water Safety Plans, Building Long Term Cultural Change and Resilience to Pandemics
Water Safety Plans provide the building blocks for creating safe water supply systems for our communities. If implemented using an engagement model it can be used to build resilience in water operations and create long-term sustainable improvements as well as resilience when unexpected events do occur.
The workshop covered the basics of water safety plans, an overview of a different approach to risk assessments, as well as discussions on how to embed Water Safety Plans to create long-term benefits.
There was also an open discussion with Pacific utilities on their experiences with the development of their plans.
This learning event is part of the Pacific WASH webinar series that serves as a regional platform to advance knowledge and learning in utility operations and the broader WASH sector practice.
