Global status report on water safety plans, A review of proactive risk assessment and risk management practices to ensure the safety of drinking-water

Water safety planning is a comprehensive risk assessment and risk management approach that is widely recognized as the most reliable and effective way to manage drinking-water supplies to safeguard public health.

Based on information gathered from 118 countries representing every region of the globe, this report provides a picture of WSP uptake worldwide. It presents information on WSP implementation and the integration of WSPs into the policy environment. It also explores WSP benefits, challenges and future priorities.

It is envisaged that this report will serve as a useful resource for policy-makers, practitioners and other stakeholders to inform and strengthen the planning and practice of WSP implementation.
