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
