Our WASH Gap Analysis identifies sanitation in humanitarian settings as the area with the most challenges and potential for innovation.
Several priority areas were outlined by our Gap Analysis and our Problem Exploration Report on Faecal Sludge Management.
Purpose-built latrines often fail to address the sanitation needs and practices of affected communities, leading people to prefer open defecation.
We have also produced a Challenge Candidate List, which provides a summary of the key challenges presented in the Problem Exploration Report on Faecal Sludge Management.
We have prioritised innovations looking to address these sanitation challenges.
There is a lack of standardisation of safety protocols and equipment to strengthen the de-sludging, transporting and disposal of faecal sludge. As well as this, the management of excreta during an emergency in an urban context has very limited options. More standardised and reliable concepts need to be developed to facilitate the implementation and management of sanitation programmes. This Problem Exploration Report offers a few areas for further exploration and development in Faecal Sludge Management.
