Regional WASH Workshops to Strengthen Humanitarian Preparedness and Response Capacity
Regional WASH Workshops in 2020
The German WASH Network's Regional WASH Workshop series aims at strengthening local WASH disaster preparedness and response capacities to allow for the provision of appropriate and effective humanitarian WASH services in disaster and crisis prone regions.
This series of workshops in 2020 are focused particularly on the strengthening of actors in the priority fields of preparedness, disaster risk reduction (DRR), climate change adaption (CCA), inclusion & gender, behaviour change and cash & markets can make a significant and sustainable difference for people living in disaster and crisis affected areas. The workshops are seen as a vital exchange platform to allow for necessary knowledge sharing, South-South learning and networking among regionally active German WASH Network members and its local partners as well as for strengthening the linkages to existing regional and international humanitarian networks and central actors of the humanitarian system.
The initiative is informed by the WASH Cluster System (e.g. Knowledge Management Survey 2017) and continually adapted to the strategic priorities of the Global WASH Cluster in the fields of knowledge management and capacity building. The identified target regions for the Regional WASH Workshops are anglophone and francophone Africa, Asia and the MENA region.
