A sample organigram for running a typical refugee WASH programme for 20,000 people in a post emergency camp based setting. The organigram gives an indication of how the WASH Team should be structured in addition to the tentative number of Coordinators, Team Leaders, Officer, and Assistant level staff that should be recruited.
This template can be used to help UNHCR and WASH actors establish a simple WASH operational plan (WHO will do WHAT, WHERE, WHEN, and HOW and WHO will PAY and WHO will MONITOR). This template can be used in addition to the site level WASH Strategy Template.

The book Emergency Sanitation: Assessment and programme design has been produced to assist those involved in planning and implementing emergency sanitation programmes. The main focus of the book is a systematic and structured approach to assessment and programme design. It provides a balance between the hardware (technical) and software (socio-cultural, institutional) aspects of sanitation programmes, and links short-term emergency response to long-term sustainability. The book is relevant to a wide range of emergency situations, including both natural and conflict-induced disasters, and open and closed settings. It is suitable for field technicians, engineers and hygiene promoters, as well as staff at agency headquarters.

Where required, UNHCR and WASH actors should work together to develop a site level refugee WASH strategy document that clearly describes the refugee context, the baseline WASH situation, WASH coverage, WASH gaps, along with short (6 months), medium (6 months – 5 years) and long-term (>5 years) strategies for each of the WASH sub-sectors and the twelve (12) WASH principles. This template can be used to help produce the site level WASH Strategy.
Where required, UNHCR and WASH actors should work together to develop a country level refugee WASH strategy document that clearly describes the refugee context, the baseline WASH situation, WASH coverage, WASH gaps, along with short (6 months), medium (6 months – 5 years) and long-term (>5 years) strategies for each of the WASH sub-sectors and the twelve (12) WASH principles. This template can be used to help produce the Country level WASH Strategy.
