Water, Sanitation and Hygiene Innovation Catalogue: A Collection of Innovations for the Humanitarian Sector

Author: Elrha

Year: 2019

Publisher: Enhancing Learning & Research for Humanitarian Assistance (Elrha)

The WASH Innovation Catalogue is divided into thematic sections, each introduced through a short summary of the problem drawing on our 2013 Gap Analysis on Emergency Water, Sanitation and Hygiene Promotion and subsequent Problem Exploration Reports. Many of the innovations featured have been supported through our targeted Funding Challenges which directly responded to the priority problems outlined in the Gap Analysis.

Others have entered our portfolio through our former Core Grants funding process that had no specific problem or sector focus but awarded grants solely based on the quality of the idea. This catalogue contains 31 HIF-funded innovations, as well as four research studies funded by our sister programme, Research for Health in humanitarian Crises (R2HC). However, not all of our funded WASH innovations are included – some are at an early stage and have no outputs to report to date. Towards the end of this catalogue you will find a section with short summaries of three innovations that have finished without concrete outputs, but with valuable learning to share.
