Being 'Fit for Purpose': Perspectives on Implementing Humanitarian Public Health & WASH Actions

The changing nature of humanitarian crises has placed high expectations on the aid system, which is now called on to simultaneously address multiple issues, sectors, and types of vulnerability. This is especially true in protracted crises where practitioners must strike a balance between known, evidence-based interventions, and those that address the longer-term public health and WASH needs over a prolonged period of time.

Mobilising Finance for WASH: Getting the Foundation Right

A substantial increase in sector financing is needed for governments to achieve Sustainable Development Goal 6 (SDG 6). Mobilizing finance to address the SDG 6.1 and 6.2 financing gap successfully and sustainably will require more than innovative or sophisticated financial vehicles and mechanisms. To move to scale, private and public investment hinges on core foundational issues being addressed in the water sector by service providers, governments, and other enabling environment stakeholders.

Webinar Discusses the Use of Monitoring Data in WASH Sector Decision-Making

Thanks to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), as well as other smaller-scale initiatives throughout the world focused on improving access to water and sanitation, vast amounts of new data are being generated within the water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH) sector to measure progress against these goals. But are these data being used to inform decisions? And if not, how do we support the use of monitoring data in the decision-making process?
