Safe Water Network’s mission is to promote scale up of Small Water Enterprises (SWEs). It develops Decision Support System (DSS) digital tools to enable entrepreneurs, communities and WASH promoters to own and operate sustainable SWEs.
The Plant Assessment Tool is used to assessthe performance of SWEs -water purification plants at community level. It assesses the plant performance against specific Performance Standards on the basis of five criteria: Social, Operational, Financial, Institutional, and Environmental(SOFIE). PAT evaluates SWE performance and delivers a quantifiable SOFIE scoreon each of the five evaluation criteria both in a graphical and tabular format. It provides insights in decision making to improve the plant performance for sustainability.
