Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

Information is the first step to solutions towards awareness of the need for improved water management. Recognizing the right information to be communicated well to the community and the general public is invaluable in order to change behaviour and attitude for better and sustainable water quality and supply. The type of information and how this information is disseminated to the community need to be given considerable attention. This chapter focuses on water information access (WIA) and the framework in developing its 'communication pack' to be taken into consideration when communicating water issues to the public. It presents the framework or methodological research design that was adopted in designing the framework of the 'water information access' (WIA). The project identifies the prioritized information and the relevant communication methods that are needed to raise water information awareness among the community. These findings were incorporated in the WIA carnival in its aims to educate and promote water information awareness to the community.
