Sanitation Safety Plan

Safe water supply, safe sanitation services and food security are elements to ensure public health and human wellbeing. These three components are in fact greatly interrelated in a locality, but unfortunately neglected by the authorities, particularly in limited resource countries. Sanitation Safety Planning (SSP) is a risk-based management tool developed by WHO to reduce the health risks in each step of the sanitation chain. The SSP brings together the relevant actors to identify the potential health risks and agree on improvements, proper operation, maintenance and monitoring measures to ensure the safety of the population, reducing the health risks related to sanitation systems, in particular the reuse step. cewas, as a WHO certified SSP trainer, provides tailor-made SSP trainings and workshops to different stakeholders. cewas co-facilitated the 1st SSP Training in Kolkata- India (16th – 19th August 2016), the SSP Training for Contained Based Sanitation Enterprises for the Toilet Board Coalition in Richmond – UK (11th – 14th September 2017) and the SSP series of workshops for the Resource Recovery and Reuse Public Private Working Group in Peru in Lima (24th – 27th September 2017), led by the Ministry of Housing, Construction and Sanitation.
