This research aims to contribute a small part towards larger efforts building credible evidence and increasing understanding of the current proven solutions in the emergency context through two components. The first component aims to investigate and compile what options have been proven for applications in the emergency context. The second component aims to understand what are the driving forces behind the decisions made on faecal sludge disposal in first phase emergencies at the field level.

This guidance is intended to support humanitarian practitioners in site selection and establishment, as well as associated risk mitigation. The challenge has two components: 1) research; and 2) dissemination.
