Urban WASH in Emergencies

In 2014, REDR conducted a pilot course for WASH in emergencies and addressed gender issues. The key lessons, key messages, and experiences were compiled. Facilitators and participants found that in urban settings it was particularly hard to separate WASH from any other sector and issues around gender were very interconnected with land tenancy issues, environmental factors, livelihoods, individual vulnerabilities, ethnic factors and economic inequality. They also found that there were large cross-cutting areas for gender issues when considering WASH aspects, such as social and institutional aspects of hygiene promotion, water, sanitation, drainage and vector control, amongst other sectors.
