Water Safety Planning

  • Narrative case study of the longstanding WOP between SIAAP, the Parisian sanitaiton operator, and ONEE, the national operator of Morocco. This partnership has focussed on numerous improvemente tracks including Wastewater Treatment, Risk Prevention and Water Quality Control. 

  • II congressReport of the II Congress of GWOPA held in Barcelona in 2013, in which the main themes treated were finance of WOPs, their results, learning approaches, capacity development for non-revenue water management, water workers, and risk reduction, besides an overview on the regional WOP platforms work, recent performance and future goals.

  • small communitiesRecommendations on water safety plan (WSP) to reach most effective way of ensuring continuous provision of safe drinking-water. The challenges related to drinking-water supply in rural areas and small towns are of notable concern across the entire WHO European Region. This field guide aims to support WSP implementation in small communities by providing brief explanations of the WSP process and practical templates for field use.

  • water safety planThe WHO Regional Office for Europe held a workshop entitled "Building capacities for the development of water safety plans" on 24–25 June 2014 in Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan, intended to support the implementation of the 2014–2016 programme of work of the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE) and WHO Protocol on Water and Health to the 1992 Convention on the Protection and Use of Transboundary Watercourses and International Lakes.

    The primary purpose of the workshop was to increase understanding of and support for water safety plans (WSPs) and for a sustainable scale-up of WSP implementation in countries of eastern Europe, the Caucasus and central Asia (EECCA), being one of the outcomes of the workshop this brochure for advice for communities and local institutions working on rural water supplies.

  • wop latamThe WOP comes from the invitation that Aguas Santafesinas S.A. received to participate in a Regional Workshop for capacity building about water safety plans held in November of 2012 in Quito (Ecuador), financed by UN-Habitat/GWOPA, with the collaboration of IWA and Cap-Net.


    Thereafter, Aguas Santafesinas (ASSA) with the support of AEOPAS, the Spanish Association of Public Water Utilities and WOP-LAC, was put in contact with the Spanish utility Aigües del Prat S.A. that operates a reverse osmosis plant, recognized by its excellent management, similar to the ASSA one.

    The WOP contributed to develop the ASSA own water safety plan, and specifically for the town of Firmat in Argentina, that in summertime suffers from the lack of water to supply the population. The potabilisation of the aquifer of the area is the main issue.
