This four day workshop provides attendees interested in clean water projects in developing countries with the knowledge they need to create an effective, sustainable program. This is the latest workshop from the Centre for Affordable Water and Sanitation Technologies (CAWST) and enables participants to select approaches that are appropriate for their context, as well as key resources to learn more about the different approaches.
Household Water Treatment and Safe Storage (2 days)
This workshop has been designed for those interested in starting or strengthening Household Water Treatment and Safe Storage (HWTS) projects in developing countries and those working within water, sanitation, community development and/or health projects. It is also beneficial for those who are interested in learning about various water sources, contaminants and diseases. The workshop is directed towards decision makers, non-government organizations (NGOs), government agencies, community and individuals such as community leaders and educators who are working within communities to provide safe water.
Drinking Water Quality Testing (2 days)
Drinking water quality testing ensures individuals, families and communities are using safe drinking water. This workshop will provide knowledge and skills for participants to become familiar with different water quality test methods and understand the practicalities of implementing their own drinking water quality-testing project.
By end of these four days you will have gained the knowledge and skills to implement, monitor and evaluate household water treatment and safe storage and small community water supply system projects in developing countries and be familiar with different water quality test methods.
