The scattered nature of the islands and the limited human and financial resource base in the Pacific island countries demand the shift from the traditional reliance on national surveillance authorities to empowering communities to keep their water supplies safe. It is believed that the approach of training local facilitators to promote the Water Safety Plans (WSP) concept to households in rural and outer island communities can be effective and successful to achieve the goal of providing safe drinking water to the population. A Water Safety Plan is a risk management approach to ensure the safe quality of drinking water from the catchment to the consumer. It basically identifies risks of contamination to the water supply and implements best practices to mitigate those risks. It is recognised that access to water alone does not guarantee that it is safe for human consumption
