Brief WASH Flyer illustrating the global challenges delivering WASH services for refugees. The flyer touches on UNHCR’s WASH response to the 2030 agenda and the human right to safe water and sanitation.
UNHCR and Oxfam commissioned this study to better understand how emergency WASH services are delivered, and to identify how the provision of infrastructure can lead to sustainable service delivery and a more professional management mechanism. As many humanitarian crises are protracted in nature, emergency WASH services need to be sustained once humanitarian agencies depart. This report aims to review and identify alternative service delivery options, and to provide some pragmatic guidance that can be incorporated into emergency response programmes and tested, evaluated and built on in the future.

Where required, UNHCR and WASH actors should work together to develop a country level refugee WASH strategy document that clearly describes the refugee context and the baseline WASH situation, along with short, medium and long-term strategies for each of the WASH sub-sectors. This template can be used to help produce a short and concise Country level WASH Strategy. It includes a phased approach, HR requirements and site-level Operational Plans.
