The Department of Public Health Engineering is working to implement the government’s commitment to ensure safe water, sanitation and waste management facilities for all and to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals of the Safe Water and Sanitation (WASH) sector by 2030.

A “National Compendium of Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) Technologies for disaster Response” has been prepared through a consultative process with organizations belonging to the WASH cluster to address disaster and post-disaster challenges. This compilation includes disaster and post-disaster technologies that will be promoted/implemented as appropriate technologies for climate resilient disaster preparedness. The compendium also includes technical drawings of various technologies, including plan and section views that will aid in field construction of the technology. Finally, cost estimates with volume are presented for each technology included in this compilation. Bill of Quantity (BOQ) is prepared based on technology design, drawing/specification and current market rate of the item.
