Sustainable Use of Water Standard



Trainings for this certificate

The objective of the sustainable use of water Standard is defined as follows:

The use of water that is socially and culturally equitable, environmentally sustainable and economically beneficial, achieved through a stakeholder-inclusive process that involves site-and catchment-based actions. Good water stewards understand their own water use, catchment context and shared concerns in terms of water governance; water balance; water quality; Important Water-Related Areas (IWRAs); Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH), and then engage in meaningful individual and collective actions that benefit people, the economy and nature."Reference: International water stewardship standard"

THE AWS STANDARD FRAMEWORK IS BUILT AROUND FIVE STEPS:

1. GATHER AND UNDERSTAND

2. COMMIT AND PLAN

3. IMPLEMENT

4. EVALUATE

5. COMMUNICATE AND DISCLOSE

Each step consists of a number of criteria to be addressed, each criterion having one or more indicators for compliance. There are ‘core’ indicators, representing the minimum requirement, and ‘advanced’ indicators, to achieve higher levels of water stewardship status and to promote continual improvement. The steps are not required to be followed in strict order and although generally the steps are order-dependent, actions associated with specific criteria and indicators may occur in parallel.
