Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) Contingency Plan 2014-2015

The overall objective of this document is to outline a timely WASH Cluster response – providing a mechanism for effectively reducing the transmission of WASH related diseases and exposures to disease bearing vectors through the provision of safe water, adequate sanitation and hygiene promotion to an affected population – in the event of a future emergency in Fiji. This contingency plan has been developed to prepare the WASH Cluster for a more effective response to the humanitarian needs of people affected, taking into account lessons learnt and needs identified from the flood response of 2012. In order to mitigate the severe impacts of flooding, this Flood Contingency Plan has been prepared to quickly identify and respond to emerging humanitarian needs in the WASH sector as a result of the foreseeable flooding incidence. Two possible scenarios have been identified: the anticipated scenario (most likely) and the worst case scenario (least likely).
