Water, Sanitation and Hygiene Policy 2018
The Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) sector has gone through major transformations since the 2000s, from a focus on infrastructure to emphasizing the importance of hygiene, behavior change and approaches addressing governance. Human resources within the sector have also diversified considerably as it is common to see epidemiologists, agronomists, anthropologists and psychologists working on WASH projects these days.
In this updated version of Action Against Hunger’s WASH policy, the organization reaffirms its commitment to implementing WASH programs as a strategic pillar of its humanitarian interventions, and of the fight against hunger. This document also shows how the Action Against Hunger WASH department has adapted to new challenges such as urbanization, climate change, or new geopolitical reference points in the humanitarian sector. In a changing world, our determination to support the lives of the most vulnerable remains intact.
