Safe water and sanitation are the primary drivers of public and environmental health and are human rights. Improving service levels to provide safely managed drinking water and sanitation, such as regulated piped water and a complete sanitation service chain, can dramatically improve public wellbeing.

This track engages with the direct and indirect linkages between water and health. You will learn how wastewater, drinking water and sanitation relate to urbanization, climate change, human behaviour and aspirations. 

You will be introduced to the key management and governance dimensions, challenges and solutions. Depending on the profile you choose, you will learn to adequately evaluate, develop, design, and manage sanitation or drinking water provision, including treatment and re-use, transport and distribution, or learn more about the broader technological, socio-economic and public health issues, including management and governance.
