Responses to the current Global Emergencies for Sanitation

Hello,

In light of the current emergencies that agencies are responding to does anyone have any useful resources, advice or information to share?

WEDC have circulated the WHO technical notes for drinking water, sanitation and hygiene in emergencies. However it would be good if agencies have any useful resources or advice that is context specific to share them for others operating in the sector.

Thanks
Esther

Re: Responses to the current Global Emergencies for Sanitation

Dear Esther,

What kind of resources are you after? And where is the gap in knowledge, i.e. what do the aid agencies need exactly? Perhaps all the information is already out there but there is no "time" to digest new information, train staff and then do things differently to before?

Also is this an initiative of SuSanA's Working Group 8 to collect more or other materials than what they have done already?

For those not aware of this: each working group has a website page like this one:
www.susana.org/en/working-groups/emergen...struction-situations

On this page at the top left you see a link to the "Top-5" reads. And a link at the bottom is taking you to "Recommended reading". In the case of Working Group 8 there are these 22 documents:
www.susana.org/en/knowledge-hub/resource...ns/library/filter/45

So is your question whether there are additional documents that are not yet included or whether the selection needs to be refined?

Please clarify, thanks.

Regards,
Elisabeth

P.S. If it's a call specifically to members of Working Group 8 then you may also like to use the Working Group's mailing list.
