The primary objective of sanitation interventions is to protect and enhance public health. Currently, several measures are being undertaken to improve the sanitation status in developing countries – but most of these initiatives do not take public health into account. Rather, the focus is on the ‘hardware’ aspect of sanitation: basically, the provision of services and infrastructure. The planning processes to improve sanitation in most countries fail to integrate public health across all spheres.
There is a need, therefore, for a convergence of regulatory and institutional aspects to approach sanitation from a holistic perspective, which integrates service provision and infrastructure with public health.
Centre for Science and Environment’s (CSE) School of Water and Waste (AAETI), in collaboration with the World Health Organization (WHO), is organizing a four-day Training of Trainers programme on 'Climate Resilient Sanitation Safety Planning. Step-by-step risk management for safely managed sanitation systems’. This training is based on the second edition of sanitation safety planning tool launched by the World Health Organization (WHO) in 2022, and is in line with the WHO’s 2018 guidelines on sanitation and health at the local authority level.
This training would highlight the importance of managing and investing in improved sanitation systems based on adequate understanding of the actual health risks
Sanitation Safety Planning (SSP) is a risk-based management tool for sanitation systems. It provides a structure to bring together actors and stakeholders from various sectors to identify health risks in the sanitation system and agree on improvements and regular monitoring. The approach ensures that control measures target the greatest health risks and emphasise on incremental improvement over time. SSP highlights the integration of the health sector while reusing wastewater, excreta and grey water, and helps to bring a human health perspective to traditional non-health sectors like sanitation engineering and agriculture.
WHAT DOES THE TRAINING PROGRAMME OFFER?
The programme aims to establish a pool of national and international sanitation players who have in-depth understanding of SSP’s key concepts and principles. In line with this objective, the programme will:
The training style is based on the ‘Harvard Case Method’, which conveys teaching messages through interactive practical work done by trainees. The training will be focused on experiential learning – including individual/group interaction, practical group exercises, interactions with experts, discussions, and documentary films to highlight the best management practices implemented successfully.
The training programme will also incorporate a field visit to build practical knowledge about the SSP tool.
