Sanitation Safety Planning - Learning Hub

Author: World Health Organization (WHO)

Sanitation Safety Planning (SSP) is a step-by-step risk-based approach for local level risk assessment and management for the sanitation service chain – including toilet, containment/storage and treatment, conveyance, treatment and end use or disposal.

SSP requires capacities from a range of stakeholders to initiate, develop, implement, monitor and sustain the process to safely manage sanitation systems. In particular, the success of SSP depends on the support and commitment from authorities, as well as the capacities of a local leader and team to implement each step of the SSP methodology.

With the aim of encourage the implementation of Sanitation Safety Planning, the World Health Organization presents this online platform for practitioners and trainers with an online training and learning resources required to launch SSP processes at local level.
