OUTCOMES BY WATER EDUCATION DISCIPLINE
SWEAP outcomes are organized according to distinct disciplines, each of which relies on specific strategies to achieve outcomes. The continuum below demonstrates the relationships among SWEAP outcomes and their respective disciplines, including the strategies associated with each.
The 10 outcomes of SWEAP rely on strategies and actions to achieve measurable changes in water awareness by 2025. Each outcome moves in a sequence and builds upon the other to meet water education standards effectively and equitably.
