Flood and Drought Management Tools

Webinar: Water Safety Plans – a risk management approach from catchment to consumer

UNEP-DHI Partnership in collaboration with DHI and the International Water Association (IWA) is organising a Water Safety Plan webinar on the 15th of March (13.00 CET) as part of a series of technical webinars focusing on innovative approaches to Floods and Droughts planning and management for basins and water utilities.

Water Safety Plans (WSPs) are used by water utilities and their stakeholders as a comprehensive risk assessment and risk management approach from catchment to consumer, with the aim of consistently ensuring the safety and acceptability of a drinking-water supply. WSPs are increasingly recognised by utilities and regulators to not only ensure water quality for public health but to improve operational efficiency, identify more sustainable capital investments, and potentially prepare for climate hazards.

This webinar will provide an overview of what are WSPs, and experiences that utilities have had in putting them into practice.

  • Kizito Masinde (Programmes Officer, IWA) - An overview of Water Safety Plans
  • George Odero (Water Production Manager, KIWASCO, Kisumu, Kenya ) - Challenges, successes and lessons learned in WSP implementation.
