In any humanitarian crisis, communities need access to safe drinking water, adequate sanitation and hygiene.
Water-borne diseases are major killers in disasters and complex emergencies. They can occur where large populations are displaced, or where local infrastructure has been destroyed by a natural hazard or conflict.
This course will introduce you to the Water Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) sector in emergencies, and is designed for those who want to benefit from industry-leading WASH engineering practice.
This course provides a comprehensive overview of the components of water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) in emergencies for humanitarian workers. It is ideal if you are already involved or likely to be involved in public health and WASH programming, as a field officer, coordinator and/or decision maker.
You are expected to have a base level understanding of WASH issues. The course suits water, environmental and public health engineers, WASH project managers, and public or environmental health specialists involved in emergency responses. It is also suitable for those with technical skills oriented toward large-scale urban systems, who want to adapt their skills to humanitarian emergency work, as well as anyone who has already worked or volunteered in emergency relief and wants to improve or learn new public health engineering skills.
The course is in English and a reasonable proficiency is required by participants.
