Re: The Emergency WASH Google Group

Dear Dan,
Interesting. I wonder if we could somehow harvest synergies between your Emergency WASH Google Group and the Working Group 8 (WG 8 ) of SuSanA which also deals with WASH and emergencies. Each SuSanA working group has a moderated e-mail list as well which the leads can use. Sadly, the current working group leads (all of them, not just WG 8 ) are not using the mailing list options much. I suspect they fear that they would otherwise overload people's inboxes but I am not sure. I think one e-mail per fortnight from the WG 8 lead (for example) would be acceptable.

More information about said working group and its leads is available here: www.susana.org/en/working-groups/emergen...struction-situations

Meanwhile, feel free to post the link to the group's latest biweekly updates which you put on Sanitation Updates also into this thread.
Thanks.

Regards,
Elisabeth

Re: The Emergency WASH Google Group

Dear Colleagues:

The July 30, 2018 Emergency WASH Google Group's latest update is posted on Sanitation Updates .

Some text excerpts are:

JOURNAL ARTICLES

Exploring menstrual practices and potential acceptability of reusable menstrual underwear among a Middle Eastern population living in a refugee setting. International Journal of Women’s Health, July 2018.
Menstrual hygiene beliefs, behaviors, and practices are mostly consistent with existing literature. An acceptance of the concept of reusable menstrual underwear was expressed, although the perceived benefits of this product did not outweigh customary practices. The use of menstrual underwear as a complimentary product to traditional absorbents was expressed as helpful for promoting dignity.

REPORTS

UNHCR Public Health 2017 Annual Global Overview. UNHCR, July 2018.
The average litres per person per day globally was at 21 litres. Where possible, high yield boreholes coupled with solar energy have been used to provide water to refugees through chlorinated gravity fed distribution systems. An average latrine ratio of 22 persons per latrine was achieved globally, which is just below standard and represents an improvement from 2016.

Management of radioactivity in drinking-water. WHO, 2018.
Management of radioactivity in drinking-water responds to Member States requests for additional guidance to support radionuclide management in drinking-water in emergency and non-emergency situations.


Impact evaluation of WFP’s programmes targeting moderate acute malnutrition in humanitarian situations in Chad. 3ie Impact Evaluation Report 78, July 2018.
This study focuses on the interrelation between prevention and treatment of moderate acute malnutrition (MAM) on children aged 6–23 months

USAID Sustainable Water Partnership Toolkits on Water Security –
This series of six toolkits present an effective and efficient process to address water risks, including long-term water stresses that constrain social and economic development and sudden shocks that can quickly ruin the health and livelihoods of vulnerable populations.

BLOG POSTS

Emergency sanitation prototype introduced. FLEX, July 2018.
eSOS uses the power of ICT and data management to redefine the way in which sanitation solutions operate in the aftermath of a disaster. Clever sensors and other hardware feed the software with data to determine for instance the best timing and route for de-sludging. The data collected by the toilet can be valuable on different levels like operational efficiency and quality in health care.

UNICEF Innovation: Accessible Latrine Slab for Emergencies. UNICEF, 2018.
Procurement of latrine slabs accessibility components can enable partners on the ground to provide appropriate facilities for displaced persons (including children) living in camps or settlements, ultimately improving safety and dignity for users

Sanitation in Focus: Innovation in humanitarian response. Oxfam, July 2018.
Oxfam’s head of Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) discusses how the sector is innovating to address the needs of those Oxfam supports in humanitarian situations. The podcast discusses adapting to changing priorities, new approaches we can use in emergencies and where the sector is headed due to better coordination and communication of approaches.
