WSP application in Small Community WSSsWhat are small community water supply schemes? SCWSSs are defined based on their population size, treatment capacity, treatment technology, etc.What is a water safety plan? WSP approach is the assessment, prioritization and continuous management of risk to water safety from catchment to consumer.Why should apply WSPs to SCWSSs? Adopting an incremental improvement plan means that improvements are made over time, moving gradually towards meeting community, local or national water quality targets or objectives.

Global Water CrisisA child dies every 15 seconds from a water-borne disease.

252525Slide Three Emotion-Global Water CrisisOne child dies every 15 seconds from water-related disease, thats why its so important to use clean water and sanitation programs that work.

Contaminated water is the leading cause of death for children under 5.

Lack of clean water contributes to disease, poverty and conflict. But, the problem is not too big to solve. WaterPartners projects are effective and sustainable.

Diarrhea takes the lives of 4,900 children every day.

But whole world worries about a single plane crash?
