Water Safety Plan Implementation in Africa

Improving Drinking Water Quality and Safeguarding Public Health through Water Safety Plan Implementation

Water Safety Plans (WSPs) are widely recognized as the most reliable and effective way to consistently manage drinking water supplies to safeguard public health. IWA is supporting water service providers in a total of 16 African Countries, with support from USEPA and the Opec Fund for International Development (OFID), to develop, implement and monitor WSPs. IWA is developing training programmes, tools and facilitating Water Operator Partnerships (WOPs) between utilities to support implementation. Furthermore, IWA are supporting the implementation of low-cost interventions to improve the safety of water supplies for six water service providers in West Africa, namely: Ghana, Liberia, Sierra Leone, Burkina Faso, Guinea and Senegal.
