Water & Sanitation Safety Planning

2020 - 2022 • Women Engage for a Common Future e.V. (WECF)

Purpose

We're continuing our educational activities on Water and Sanitation Safety Planning (WSSP), a method for minimising risks in the water and sanitation sector. WSSP is introduced in Serbian rural communities and our activities in Romania, North Macedonia, a

Activities

In the project countries of Romania, North Macedonia, Albania and Serbia there is a lack of sustainable water and sanitation management in rural areas, which in can lead to serious consequences for the environment and the health of the population. Our aim is to introduce and further develop the instrument Water and Sanitation Safety Planning (WSSP) in the target countries. WSSP shows methods for risk analysis and assessment of water and sanitation systems and explains measures to minimise risks and improve the water and sanitation situation. In various educational activities, a WSSP compendium already developed by WECF will be presented to various stakeholders from education, administration, politics and institutions. In North Macedonia and Albania, trainings will be conducted, also building on trainings from the previous project. In Serbia, WSSP is being introduced for the first time. Media campaigns and public relations work are used to sensitise the local population to the issue, thereby promoting social awareness and the ability to act on one's own responsibility in the field. In Romania and North Macedonia, online educational portals on water, sanitation, wastewater and the environment will be set up to help teachers integrate WSSP into their curriculum. The North Macedonian partners will promote the introduction of WSSPs at national and local level in round tables with political decision makers. Finally, a revised, expanded and updated edition of the WSSP Compendium will be published, taking into account the results of the educational activities and the educational portal – including a focus on disease management.
