STRATEGY & GUIDANCE. Browse Globalwaters.org's growing collection of documents and materials from the USAID's E3 Water Office that provide guidance to water development practitioners.
The USAID Water Communications and Knowledge Management (Water CKM) project is conducting a series of independent ex-post evaluations of the Agency’s water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH) activities to inform future USAID investments in the sector.
Emergency water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH) is a critical component of USAID’s humanitarian assistance for vulnerable populations, who are much more susceptible to diseases related to inadequate sanitation and water supplies.
CASE STUDIES. Real-world examples from the field about successful approaches, challenges faced, and lessons learned.
Menstrual Hygiene Management Day
May 28th marks the global event to raise awareness about the challenges women and girls face due to menstruation and to highlight solutions.
WATER SECURITY. Recognizing that water insecurity poses enormous challenges to stability and development, USAID works with at-risk communities throughout the world to more effectively navigate stronger floods, endure longer droughts, and cope with water supply variability.
COMMUNITY LED TOTAL SANITATION
CLTS is an approach to achieve sustained behavior change of people who participate in a guided process of "triggering"; the triggering is intended to lead to spontaneous and long-term change of social behaviours, in particular the abandonment of open defecation.
