New publication: Bringing WASH into the Water–Energy–Food Nexus in Humanitarian Settings

Hi everyone,

We've just published a new IDS Working Paper drawing on a study undertaken for UNHCR on multi-sector programme planning for the Rohingya refugee crisis and suggests that sanitation is a key (but often ignored) element of the water-energy-food nexus. Recommendations include:
  • WASH innovations should be grounded in the particular contexts, needs and locations, to ensure positive outcomes across the nexus.
  • Connect protection, security and wellbeing to the design of services and innovations.
  • Work with both host and refugee communities, investing in positive social interactions and in community ownership of resources.
You can download the paper here to find out more.

Please do let us know if you have any comments, or if you found it useful. 

Thanks,

Alice
