USAID & Water Information Survey

USAID is developing a new web portal that could potentially serve as a centralized resource for Agency staff, partners and the public on global water issues.

The below brief and voluntary survey will help USAID determine what content and features would be of greatest use to the water and development community. The entire survey should take less than 5 minutes for you to complete.

For more information please contact the E3/Water Office – Communications and Knowledge Management team at waterteam@usaid.gov.

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.

The survey is being conducted by the Global WASH Cluster, a grouping of some of the largest humanitarian agencies in the WASH sector.

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:

For further information, contact the WASH Cluster Advocacy and Support Team: Paul Sherlock (psherlock@unicef.org); or Jean McCluskey (jmccluskey@unicef.org).
