UNHCR WASH GUIDELINES FOR REFUGEE SETTINGS

These WASH design guidelines, emergency guidelines and operational guidelines form part of UNHCR’s series of Standardized Tools and Guidelines for Refugee Settings which are the result of an extensive review process with WASH actors who have active programmes supporting refugees. It is recognized that these documents will require continuous review and amendment in response to changes in best-practice and feedback from the field. Therefore further review will be managed by a Technical Committee which will discuss issues related to the use of the forms and an annual update will be reported back to the WASH community. More urgent amendments will be reported as, and when, required.
