Sanitation Solutions for the Humanitarian Context

The Humanitarian Sanitation Hub is a joint sector effort of Global WASH Cluster (GWC) members bringing together all available knowledge on planning and implementing sanitation and faecal sludge management in emergencies on one single platform. It enables and guides humanitarian WASH practitioners with easy access to contextualised and relevant guidance, resources, tools and further support services and aims to continuously fill existing knowledge gaps for improved humanitarian sanitation services.
