Abstract:
The WHO Framework for Safe Drinking-water has been developed from many years of field work and evidence of the challenges faced in the provision of safe diinking-water supply. However, there has been no analysis of the potential of the WHO Framework to improve drinking-water safety in a small island environment. In order to carry out the research, Islands with a broad range of characteristics in a relatively unstudied region were chosen to add to the existing knowledge of the challenges experienced by small islands. An audit of the WHO Framework was then carried out to analyse the potential strategic position it may have in the small island environment to improve drinking-water safety.
