This workshop provides an introduction to drinking water quality, the Multi-Barrier Approach to safe drinking water, household water treatment and safe storage (HWTS) options, behaviour change, and implementation best practices. 

Upon completion of the workshop, participants will be able to:
  • Define safe drinking water
  • Identify risks to water safety from the source to a user’s glass
  • Propose multiple barriers (behaviours and technologies) that reduce risks from unsafe drinking water
  • Describe when and where HWTS solutions are most likely to be appropriate and effective
  • Evaluate the benefits and limitations of different HWTS options
  • Work with users to select appropriate HWTS options for a specific context
  • Propose strategies to support behaviour change (towards correct, consistent, and continued use of HWTS systems)
  • Describe considerations that increase the likelihood of sustained impact through HWTS
