Seminar "Sanitation in emergencies and reconstruction situations" (by GTO in Germany)

Our next brand new Seminar is coming up

From the 15.-16. February our 2-day Seminar “Sanitation in emergencies and reconstruction situations” will take place in Berlin.

Abstract: The Seminar gives an overview of the challenges and potentials of sanitation in emergency situations and provides a well-balanced composition of practical group exercises and theory.

Background: After humanitarian disasters as flooding, typhoons, earthquakes and armed conflicts, rapid response is required. Food security, shelter, access to safe water and well-functioning sanitation systems are top priorities. Repeated cholera outbreaks and the risks of water-based diseases in emergency situations and refugee camps, shows that sanitation is of central importance for the health, safety and dignity of the affected population.
But what to do in regions with very high water tables, rocky soil or urban regions, where you can’t excavate a pit so easily? How can the main objective of sanitation in the context of emergency aid – the safe storage and disposal of faeces – be ensured in a sustainable manner?

Seminar topics:
• Humanitarian emergency aid at a glance and the characteristics of sanitation in disaster situations
• The UN cluster approach and the WASH cluster
• Minimum standards in humanitarian aid and the SPHERE Project
• Sanitation and hygiene behaviour in emergency situations
• Hardware options: sanitation technologies in emergency and transitional aid as well as in reconstruction situations
• Use, operation and maintenance of various sanitation solutions
• Characteristics and importance of hygiene promotion in the emergency aid
• Overview: Project management in emergency aid
• Case studies and project experience

With guest lectures and inputs from:
• Oliver Hoffmann (Johanniter Unfallhilfe) about minimum standards in humanitarian aid and the SPHERE-Project
• Georg Ecker (Austrian Red Cross) about practical experiences in emergency sanitation and hygiene promotion (Haiti, Philippines, etc.)

Attention! Please note that the Seminar will be conducted in German only! (We are planning to hold the trainings in English as well, stay tuned...)

Cheers,
Sarah

Dear colleagues and interested persons,

First of all, we are very glad about your interest and we are aware that in English conducted seminars would be a great enrichment for all of us! Unfortunately at the moment there are no possible fundings to do so. But we are very engaged and we continue to work hard to realize this intension. It’s also up to you to spread the word of the importance of such seminars and to do some lobbying. As soon as there are any news we let you know.

Keeping you up to date and with best regards,
Sarah
