In emergency situations, the need for simple-to-use, easy-to-transport and effective mechanisms for ensuring access to clean water is paramount.
Based on our Gap Analysis, our Problem Exploration Report on Water Treatment, and on consultations with WASH practitioners, the following priorities stood out:
We have also produced a Challenge Candidate List, which provides a summary of the key challenges presented in the Problem Exploration Report on Water Treatment.
We have prioritised innovations looking to address these particular safe water challenges.
Despite the advances that have been made in coordination and professionalisation of water treatment in emergencies, there remain considerable knowledge gaps in field practice. These gaps range from operational concerns, to the lack of evidence-base for commonly applied interventions, to technological limitations. The present report puts forward three key areas which would benefit from innovations and research to improve the provision of safe water in emergency contexts.
