Webinar on Safe Water, Sanitation and Health for all during and post COVID-19 - 7th July 2020

COVID19 has reinstated the need for global action to ensure access to clean water and sanitation for all, as a human right and as a critical element to protect human health.

Key global sector players have developed guidelines and tools on sanitation, some examples include:

i. Guidelines on  Sanitation & Health  by the  World Health Organisation that summarize the evidence on the effectiveness of a range of sanitation interventions and provide a comprehensive framework for health-protecting sanitation
ii. The  SANIPATH  tool, a tool developed by  Emory University  to assess public health risks from unsafe fecal sludge management in poor urban neighbourhoods.
iii. The Shit Flow Diagram ( SFD ) - is a tool developed by The  Centre for Science and Environment  in partnership with global partners to readily understand and communicate how excreta physically flows through a city or town and population - a representation of public health hazard. 

The webinar (mentioned within this topic title) will bring together learnings from field tests of these guidelines and tools from developing countries aimed at highlighting risks and opportunities to develop sanitation priorities during and post COVID 19. The webinar is jointly organised by the School of  Water and Waste  - Centre for  Science and Environment (CSE)  and WaterAid South Asia in partnership with the  WHO  and  EmoryUniversity  on 7th July 2020 on Safe Water, Sanitation and health for all during and post COVID 19.
