Emergency WASH

Whether during drought, flooding, or violent conflict, vulnerable populations are much more susceptible to diseases related to inadequate sanitation and water supplies. The provision of emergency water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH) is therefore a critical component of USAID’s humanitarian assistance in times of disaster or conflict.

This page includes a collection of resources on emergency WASH from USAID, its partners, and other development organizations, along with links to related humanitarian organizations.
