F-308/2019a Water Tanker Inspection Checklist and Certificate (UNHCR, 2019)

This water tanker checklist has been produced to help WASH actors inspect water hauling vehicles used in refugee operations. Please note that it is not a strict compliance document, but is intended to help select water tankers that are sanitary, safe, and legal. Ideally, every vehicle should be inspected before entering service. WASH programs may decide to issue vehicles that pass with a certificate of acceptability for the duration of the operation.

      Water, Sanitation and Hygiene in Post-Emergency Contexts (UNHCR, OXFAM GB)

      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.
