WSUP animation – welcome to the world of urban WASH programming!

How do you design and implement an effective urban WASH programme?

This short animation brings the publication to life and takes you on a virtual tour of some of these activities in action: enjoy the ride!

First Global Water, Sanitation & Hygiene (WASH) in Emergencies Survey

The first ever on-line global survey of the Water, Sanitation, and Hygiene (WASH) sector of humanitarian response is now open to all sector professionals. The survey seeks to identify gaps in WASH response during emergencies by asking respondents about their experience in emergencies.

Once the survey results are collated, the Cluster will look at the identified areas of weakness to select priority areas for capacity building in the sector – beyond the current Global WASH Cluster capacity-building programme. The results will be posted on the WASH Cluster website.

The survey will be open until the end of August 2008.

The survey is available in three languages:
