Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) Environmental Considerations
Download Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) Environmental Considerations
When working on water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) projects after disasters it is important to consider the environment throughout the project cycle. Projects with good environmental planning and management help reduce short-term risks to those affected by the disaster, as well as supporting disaster risk reduction and reducing exposure to natural hazards in the future, and hence decreasing household and community vulnerability. This guidance is designed for humanitarian workers, government ofﬁ cials, non-government organization staff, community groups and private sector operators involved in WASH relief and reconstruction.
