WASH Technical Working Group

The HIF’s Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) initiative aims to stimulate innovation in emergency water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH). Supported by the UK Department for International Development (DFID), the HIF seeks to use new innovation management approaches to address some of the most pressing challenges faced by emergency WASH practitioners working in humanitarian crises globally.

The challenges have been developed by the HIF’s WASH Technical Working Group below, chaired by Andy Bastable from Oxfam UK. In collaboration with the HIF they are exploring, in detail, the gaps in innovation identified by the WASH sector, and developing and refining a number of specific challenges most suited to being approached through facilitated innovation processes.
