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
Organisation that summarize the evidence on the effectiveness of a range of sanitation interventions and provide a comprehensive framework for health-protecting sanitation
tool, a tool developed by
to assess public health risks from unsafe fecal sludge management in poor urban neighbourhoods.
iii. The Shit Flow Diagram (
) - 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
on 7th July 2020 on Safe Water, Sanitation and health for all during and post COVID 19.
