Stockholm Environment Institute (SEI) Launches WASH and RESCUE: a 3-yr research project to find solutions saving lives and improving human and environmental health through integrating disaster risk reduction in the area of water, sanitation and hygiene sponsored by Swedish MSB

The Swedish Civil Contingencies Agency (MSB) has awarded SEI a research project to build resilience against disasters in cities, with a particular focus on the crucial role played by water, sanitation and hygiene improvements. The project will make use of experience from recent and recurring disasters and floods for example in Haiti, Mozambique, India and Sweden. The project focuses on resilience - how to build it at different levels - on a river basin, city, and technology level.


Several partners are involved in this project including:
1. Kristianstad City, Rescue Service, Sweden
2. Maputo Province, Mozambique (CLASS-A)
3. Bihar, India (WASH Institute)
4. Haiti Government - DINEPA
5. Emergency Shelter Unit (Formens Hus Foundation and IKEA Foundation)

Furthermore, the research project will benefit from engagement with different initiatives:
1) Swedish Water House (SIWI) Cluster Group for Water and Disaster Risk Reduction
2) Mistra-SWECIA at SEI, Stockholm Resilience Center
3) Swedish VAKA network
4) Sustainable Sanitation Alliance (SuSanA) working group on emergency sanitation
5) Stoutenberg Group (ACF, Oxfam, WASTE, Red Cross, MSF)
6) SEI’s network of sustainable sanitation knowledge nodes www.ecosanres.org/nodes.htm
7) UNISDR: Resilient cities campaign
8 ) Partnership for Environment and Disaster Risk Reduction (PEDRR www.pedrr.net ).

Hi Ase,

While looking around on the forum for key documents and website links on emergency sanitation, I came across this post of yours from four years ago. Meanwhile, the project that you introduced here has come to an end, I guess

Could you tell us something about key results from this project? Any important publications that should find their way into the SuSanA library? Lessons learnt? Follow-up projects?
Thanks.

Kind regards,
Elisabeth

Hi all,
For anyone interested in the concept of resilience, I am sharing some outputs from the SEI Wash and Rescue project on behalf of the project leaders. I can also help you with requests for publications. Some outputs further exploring the concept of resilience in WASH systems are under review but here are some previous reports or presentations for those interested.
